Habitus and Ethnographies of Martial Arts and Combat Sports. Edited by Raúl Sánchez García & Dale C. Spencer
‘Fighting Scholars’ presents insightful ethnographic research on a range of different martial arts and combat sports. Taking the habitus as a central theme of analysis, the different contributions of this volume are aligned within the same project that began to crystallize in Loïc Wacquant’s ‘Body and Soul’: the construction of a ‘carnal sociology’ that constitutes an exploration of the social world ‘from’ the body.
