    This is a study of masculinity as a metaphor and especially of the muscular male body as a moral symbol. It explores the Nazi's preoccupation with the male body as an icon of political power, and the ideology and theories which propelled it.

    "Some superb insights into different aspects of this question."

    "a most interesting and informative collection of essays...it would certainly be of use to anyone undertaking research related to the areas of nationalism and/or masculinity in sport - two areas that directly relate to the organisation and management of sport."
