Whose Body is it Anyway? explores contemporary understandings of the body in order to highlight the conflicting ways in which it is considered in different contexts, times and spaces, either as the possession of the individual or that of society (or both). The book explores these ideas through the central theme of sport and physical activity. Often considered an automatic pathway to wellbeing, the notion of having a healthy body or a sporty body compared to an unhealthy or non-sporty body provides a useful mechanism to reveal the ways that the social operates to impose restrictions upon the individual. At the same time, the body is also enjoyed and experienced by the individual in ways that might suggest forms of agency. By drawing upon a range of contemporary examples (such as sport/diets/fitness/celebrity bodies/public health interventions) the book provides an in depth exploration of complex and competing factors that influence the way we view and make sense of our own bodies and those of others. Drawing upon these everyday examples the book provides an accessible introduction of more complex theoretical explanations which will appeal to academics and practitioners involved in broad aspects of sport, physical activity, health and wellbeing.
