El fútbol es mito, el fútbol puede ser literatura. Un deporte que apasiona y conmueve a millones de personas como ningún otro juego a lo largo de la historia no puede permanecer al margen de cuentos, poemas y novelas. El fútbol es un fenómeno que, en contra de lo que pueda parecer, en contra de los prejuicios acumulados, ha recibido una atención notable por parte de algunos de los mejores escritores en lengua española. De Cela a Delibes, de Bolaño a Villoro, pasando por los clásicos futboleros como Fontanarrosa o Soriano, este ensayo rastrea la evolución del fútbol en la literatura hispánica a través de los principales motivos que han servido para fijar y anotar el gol en la palabra.

No hay guía turístico en este país más preparado que un aficionado errante del Murcia.​ Desde 1996 hasta 2016, el Murcia ha jugado en el grupo murciano de Tercera, el grupo catalán de Segunda B, el grupo andaluz de Segunda B, el grupo gallego de Segunda B, Segunda y Primera División. El Murcia ha visto mucha España, excesiva, y eso ha traído consecuencias: hay aficionados del Murcia a los que ya no les queda España por ver, hay aficionados del Murcia que ya han marcado todas las casillas. La autobiografía de uno de los futbolistas españoles emblemáticos. EXTRACTO En un recreo del instituto me dijo Roberto, integralmente madridista, que el Murcia era para él «un club así tipo Levante», y en su mueca dibujó todo el desprecio de este mundo. En la pastelería Burgueño de Medina del Campo, la dependienta me confesó que, para ella, nosotros éramos «un equipo de esos que no importa mucho». Y en la sidrería Mi Capricho de Gijón, antes de un Sporting-Murcia, los camareros charlaron conmigo sobre el partido, me ofrecieron sus chupitos de gala y se despidieron emocionados con un «aúpa Numancia». Probablemente la imagen que se tiene del Murcia en las nebulosas exteriores no sea muy diferente de esa composición: un club así tipo Levante, que no importa mucho y que, en un momento dado, puede llegar a ser confundido con el Numancia. Y sí, sí, en efecto: el trozo de España que menos importa fue a tener el equipo que le correspondía, es decir, un equipo poco importante, si bien para algunos humanos es el equipo que más importa, y, realmente, el equipo que lo importa todo. SOBRE EL AUTOR Luis María Valero (Murcia, 1984). Su padre lo llevó al fútbol y su madre lo rodeó de libros: ambas cosas trajeron consecuencias. En un mundo ideal se levanta por la mañana, es el mediocentro del Real Murcia y decide la final de la Copa de Europa ante el Milán con un gol de cabeza a la salida de un córner, en el que le hacen una brecha enorme. Celebra ese gol poniendo cara de loco mientras saborea su propia sangre. En el mundo real siempre le dio bastante miedo ir de cabeza y se marea con la sangre. Le gustan los bares de viejos, la poesía antisentimental y amasar. Se permite a sí mismo sentir el misterio.

Tras el quinto sorbo al Kas me dieron ganas de mear y bendita la diminuta vejiga de un niño. De camino a los lavabos, con la cremallera del inocente pantalón corto todavía abierta, apareció la imagen. Destellos de luz dorada y cantos angelicales iluminaron el pasillo y el videojuego de mi vida mostró el primer logro desbloqueado en mitad de la pantalla. Entre bidones de cerveza y una pila de listines telefónicos desfasados, surgió un póster del Oviedo de la temporada 1987-88. La del último ascenso a Primera división. Ahí comenzó todo. EXTRACTO Aquí queda dicho en honor a la verdad: debo ser el único periodista deportivo que no fue al fútbol de niño con su padre. Pero que ningún parabólico se asuste y llame a los servicios sociales. Si Alfredo Relaño ha abierto un crowdfunding para equipararme de forma retroactiva a los privilegiados niños del Boxing Day, que lo cierre de inmediato. Quiero dejar clara una cosa: mis padres fueron estupendos. Tuve una infancia felicísima en la que no me faltó de nada y fue solo gracias a ellos. El borrón del fútbol esta ahí, pero nunca pudieron hacer mucho por solucionarlo. Alfonso era cocinero y Ana camarera de pisos en un hotel. Esa combinación de cuadrantes laborales convirtió en un bien escaso los momentos en familia. Las costumbres de los hosteleros españoles, siempre tan cercanas a la tiranía, pesaron más. Fueron los dobles turnos y el pluriempleo, y no otra cosa, los que retrasaron mi ingreso en la grada. Espero que Robinson, cuando me dedique uno de esos reportajes lacrimógenos que bien podría llevar por título El futbolero autodidacta, lo tenga en cuenta. He rodado ese programa mil veces en mi cabeza. Conozco de memoria su banda sonora y sus grises texturas ambientales. Sé que usarán planos de recurso de Oviedo bajo el orbayu y que los títulos de crédito aparecerán calzados con elegancia sobre las gotas de lluvia. SOBRE EL AUTOR Sergio Cortina (Oviedo, 1980). El trabajo, dignifica, en Globomedia y Yahoo! Canterano de Diarios de Fútbol. Entre Uschi Digard y Kim Shattuck. Entre Night boat to Cairo y Todos los ahorcados mueren empalmados. Perder la virginidad sobre el césped del Luigi Ferraris. Ingenuo, bocazas y yugoslavo, por parte de Joka. Un bajo que coge polvo en la esquina del dormitorio, junto a los pañales. Enemigo de la nostalgia. «¿Has visto alguna vez una fotografía tuya de cuando eras niño? En mi opinión, esas fotografías o te ponen contento o te dejan más triste que nunca», dijo Hornby. Para qué ponerse a rebatir.

"En Atocha pasé una infancia solitaria, estoica y feliz. Yo ahora me explico muchas cosas, cuando recuerdo que a los nueve o diez años subía solo a las gradas de cemento de la Tribuna Este, una hora antes del partido, y me pegaba a las vallas que separaban la zona de pie de la zona de asientos. Allí, ni la gente ni las vigas de hierro me tapaban la visión del campo. Atocha olía a selva. Se mezclaba el tufo fermentado y dulzón del mercado de frutas con el aroma fresco de la hierba recién regada y el humo de los puros. Ese sahumerio tropical aún nos inquieta a muchos, como a perros de Pavlov. Un día abrieron una verja, salté al césped ondeando el trapo de cuadros blancos y azules que mi abuela Pepi me había atado a un palo, corrí al punto de penalti y disparé un trallazo imaginario a la escuadra. Acabábamos de ganar la liga" RESEÑAS DE PRENSA Un relato tierno y divertido, atravesado de punta a punta por la naturaleza hermosa y salvaje de los balones a la olla y que se lee con la intriga propia de los descuentos - Perarnau magazine Da igual que uno no sea hincha del club; las historias que cuenta Izagirre (una familia y una infancia y una emoción enraizadas en las gradas de Atocha), y cómo las cuenta, convertirían en realista hasta al más ferviente bilbaíno. - Rolling Stone SOBRE EL AUTOR Ander Izagirre escribe con los veinte dedos. Ha publicado crónicas sobre sobre los porteadores de la cordillera del Karakórum, las niñas que trabajan en las minas de Bolivia, los campesinos que se rebelan contra la Mafia en Sicilia, las guaraníes que hicieron una revolución jugando al fútbol, los ciclistas que se dopaban con bacalao, también sobre mi vuelta a España en vespa y sobre señores que construyen calaveras gigantes, coleccionan penes de todas las especies o atraviesan Argentina empujando una carretilla de cien kilos.

Philosopher, cultural critic, and agent provocateur Slavoj Žižek constructs a fascinating new framework to look at the forces of violence in our world. Using history, philosophy, books, movies, Lacanian psychiatry, and jokes, Slavoj Žižek examines the ways we perceive and misperceive violence. Drawing from his unique cultural vision, Žižek brings new light to the Paris riots of 2005; he questions the permissiveness of violence in philanthropy; in daring terms, he reflects on the powerful image and determination of contemporary terrorists. Violence, Žižek states, takes three forms--subjective (crime, terror), objective (racism, hate-speech, discrimination), and systemic (the catastrophic effects of economic and political systems)--and often one form of violence blunts our ability to see the others, raising complicated questions. Does the advent of capitalism and, indeed, civilization cause more violence than it prevents? Is there violence in the simple idea of "the neighbour"? And could the appropriate form of action against violence today simply be to contemplate, to think? Beginning with these and other equally contemplative questions, Žižek discusses the inherent violence of globalization, capitalism, fundamentalism, and language, in a work that will confirm his standing as one of our most erudite and incendiary modern thinkers.

Literature and Revolution, written by the founder and commander of the Red Army, Leon Trotsky, in 1924 and first published in 1925, represents a compilation of essays that Trotsky drafted during the summers of 1922 and 1923. This book is a classic work of literary criticism from the Marxist standpoint. By discussing the various literary trends that were around in Russia between the revolutions of 1905 and 1917, Trotsky analyses the concrete forces in society, both progressive as well as reactionary, that helped shape the consciousness of writers at the time. In the book, Trotsky also explains that since the dawn of civilisation art had always borne the stamp of the ruling class and was primarily a vehicle that expressed its tastes and its sensibilities. “It is difficult to predict the extent of self-government which the man of the future may reach or the heights to which he may carry his technique. Social construction and psycho-physical self-education will become two aspects of one and the same process. All the arts—literature, drama, painting, music and architecture will lend this process beautiful form. More correctly, the shell in which the cultural construction and self-education of Communist man will be enclosed, will develop all the vital elements of contemporary art to the highest point. Man will become immeasurably stronger, wiser and subtler; his body will become more harmonized, his movements more rhythmic, his voice more musical. The forms of life will become dynamically dramatic. The average human type will rise to the heights of an Aristotle, a Goethe, or a Marx. And above this ridge new peaks will rise.”—Leon Trotsky

From the winner of the first Lannan Prize for Cultural Freedom, a bitingly funny, kaleidoscopic vision of the first world through the eyes of the third Eduardo Galeano, author of the incomparable Memory of Fire Trilogy, combines a novelist's intensity, a poet's lyricism, a journalist's fearlessness, and the strong judgments of an engaged historian. Now his talents are richly displayed in Upside Down, an eloquent, passionate, sometimes hilarious exposé of our first-world privileges and assumptions. In a series of lesson plans and a "program of study" about our beleaguered planet, Galeano takes the reader on a wild trip through the global looking glass. From a master class in "The Impunity of Power" to a seminar on "The Sacred Car"--with tips along the way on "How to Resist Useless Vices" and a declaration of "The Right to Rave"--he surveys a world unevenly divided between abundance and deprivation, carnival and torture, power and helplessness. We have accepted a reality we should reject, Galeano teaches us, one where machines are more precious than humans, people are hungry, poverty kills, and children toil from dark to dark. A work of fire and charm, Upside Down makes us see the world anew and even glimpse how it might be set right. "Galeano's outrage is tempered by intelligence, an ineradicable sense of humor, and hope." -Los Angeles Times, front page

It's an expression we've all heard many times, but talented author/illustrator, Aaron Blabey, takes it to another extreme in this hilarious story about a boy who discovers the very real consequences of his continual complaining. And even then, it seems it will only take a catastrophic event to bring Noah back to his senses.
Otherness in Hispanic Culture

Otherness in Hispanic Culture

Author: Teresa Fernández Ulloa
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
ISBN: 1443862339
Pages: 615
Year: 2014-06-26
This book addresses contemporary discourses on a wide variety of topics related to the ideological and epistemological changes of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, and the ways in which they have shaped the Spanish language and cultural manifestations in both Spain and Hispanic America. The majority of the chapters are concerned with ‘otherness’ in its various dimensions; the alien Other – foreign, immigrant, ethnically different, disempowered, female or minor – as well as the Other of different sexual orientation and/or ideology. Following Octavio Paz, otherness is expressed as the attempt to find the lost object of desire, the frustrating endeavour of the androgynous Plato wishing to embrace the other half of Zeus, who in his wrath, tore off from him. Otherness compels human beings to search for the complement from which they were severed. Thus a male joins a female, his other half, the only half that not only fills him but which allows him to return to the unity and reconciliation which is restored in its own perfection, formerly altered by divine will. As a result of this transformation, one can annul the distance that keeps us away from that which, not being our own, turns into a source of anguish. The clashing diversity of all things requires the human predisposition to accept that which is different. Such a predisposition is an expression of epistemological, ethical and political aperture. The disposition to co-exist with the different is imagined in the de-anthropocentricization of the bonds with all living realms. And otherness is, in some way, the reflection of sameness (mismidad). The other is closely related to the self, because the vision of the other implies a reflection about the self; it implies, consciously or not, a relationship with the self. These topics are addressed in this book from an interdisciplinary perspective, encompassing arts, humanities and social sciences.

Praise for the first edition: ‘No one seriously interested in youth mass culture or style can afford to ignore this work.’ - Stanley Cohen, The Times Higher Education Supplement ‘The Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies deserves our gratitude for having begun to locate the real areas of discussion.’ - New Society ‘...affords an authoritative perspective of society’s subcultures amongst the young since the war. What it has to say about that legacy of rebellion deserves to be read by all involved with and seeking to understand young people.’ - ILEA Contact This revised and expanded edition of Resistance through Rituals includes a new introduction to bring the reader fully up-to-date with the changes that have happened since the work’s first release in the double issue of Working Papers in Cultural Studies in 1975. The work of the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies at Birmingham has been noted as historically leading the field in new areas of enquiry within the field of cultural studies, and the papers from the Centre are canonical reading for many cultural studies students. This revised edition includes all the original, exceptional papers, and enhances these with the reflections of the editors thirty years after the original publication. At a time when youth culture had been widely publicised, but few people understood its significance as one of the most striking and visible manifestations of social and political change, these papers redressed the balance. Looking in detail at the wide range of post-war youth subcultures, from teds, mods and skinheads to black Rastafarians, Resistance through Rituals considers how youth culture reflects and reacts to cultural change. This text represents the collective understanding of the leading centre for contemporary culture, and serves to situate some of the most important cultural work of the twentieth century in the new millennium.

More than 6 years after his death David Halberstam remains one of this country's most respected journalists and revered authorities on American life and history in the years since WWII. A Pulitzer Prize-winner for his ground-breaking reporting on the Vietnam War, Halberstam wrote more than 20 books, almost all of them bestsellers. His work has stood the test of time and has become the standard by which all journalists measure themselves. The New York Times bestseller, now with a new introduction! The Breaks of the Game focuses on one grim season (1979-80) in the life of the Bill Walton-led Portland Trail Blazers, a team that only three years before had been NBA champions. The tactile authenticity of Halberstam's knowledge of the basketball world is unrivaled. Yet he is writing here about far more than just basketball. This is a story about a place in our society where power, money, and talent collide and sometimes corrupt, a place where both national obsessions and naked greed are exposed. It's about the influence of big media, the fans and the hype they subsist on, the clash of ethics, the terrible physical demands of modern sports (from drugs to body size), the unreal salaries, the conflicts of race and class, and the consequences of sport converted into mass entertainment and athletes transformed into superstars--all presented in a way that puts the reader in the room and on the court, and The Breaks of the Game in a league of its own.

Blood Relations

ISBN: 030018655X
Pages: 592
Year: 2013-10-15
The emergence of symbolic culture is generally linked with the development of the hunger-gatherer adaptation based on a sexual division of labor. This original and ingenious book presents a new theory of how this symbolic domain originated. Integrating perspectives of evolutionary biography and social anthropology within a Marxist framework, Chris Knight rejects the common assumption that human culture was a modified extension of primate behavior and argues instead that it was the product of an immense social, sexual, and political revolution initiated by women. Culture became established, says Knight, when evolving human females began to assert collective control over their own sexuality, refusing sex to all males except those who came to them with provisions. Women usually timed their ban on sexual relations with their periods of infertility while they were menstruating, and to the extent that their solidarity drew women together, these periods tended to occur in synchrony. The result was that every month with the onset of menstruation, sexual relations were ruptured in a collective, ritualistic way as the prelude to each successful hunting expedition. This ritual act was the means through which women motivated men not only to hunt but also to concentrate energies on bringing back the meat. Knight shows how this hypothesis sheds light on the roots of such cultural traditions as totemic rituals, incest and menstrual taboos, blood-sacrifice, and hunters’ atonement rites. Providing detailed ethnographic documentation, he also explains how Native American, Australian Aboriginal, and other magico-religious myths can be read as derivatives of the same symbolic logic.

Tourism—one of the world's largest industries—has long been appreciated for its economic benefits, but in this volume tourism receives a unique systematic scrutiny as a medium for cultural exchange. Modern developments in technology and industry, together with masterful advertising, have created temporarily leisured people with the desire and the means to travel. They often in turn effect profound cultural change in the places they visit, and the contributors to this work all attend to the impact these "guests" have on their "hosts." In contrast to the dramatic economic transformations, the social repercussions of tourism are subtle and often recognized only by the indigenous peoples themselves and by the anthropologists who have studied them before and after the introduction of tourism. The case studies in Hosts and Guests examine the five types of tourism—historical, cultural, ethnic, environmental, and recreational—and their impact on diverse societies over a broad geographical range

Social scientists have made a huge contribution to understanding the media. But what is the interface between social scientists and the media? How does social science come over in news and current affairs in both the print and broadcast media? Mediating Social Science provides an accessible and authoritative guide to understanding the interaction between social science and the media. The authors examine media production, the nature of media texts, the role of new sources, the general social and political context of mass communication, and the ways in which media outputs are assimilated by audiences. They explore a number of applied areas: the interaction between journalists and social scientists; publicity-seeking activities of universities, research institutes, and government departments; the attempts of individual social scientists to gain notice; the social policy environment surrounding social scientific research and its dissemination; pressures from funders; and the public understanding of social science in the news. Mediating Social Science will be required reading for students of sociology, cultural studies, communication, and media studies.
