Baby massage is a practice begun in India, and simply stated, involves sitting with the baby on your lap and massaging it gently with oil. There is very little text in this book - it's mostly photographs, of a beautiful young Indian mother, sitting on the ground with her baby on her outstretched legs. The photographs are sequential and show the various moves - gently tugging at opposite arms and legs, rubbing circular motions on the torso, massaging tiny hands and feet, and so on.The baby is clearly blissed out in the pictures, as yours will be, too if you try this! And the very act of spending that kind of time in close communion with your baby will elevate your soul as well as the baby's.I recommend this book to all new parents and give it as a Welcome to the world gift when their babies are born.

Price and Shildrick bring together over 40 important feminist thinkers to discuss key arguments and issues concerning the body. It includes articles on race, cyberspace, theatre, classics, transsexuality, reproductive technologies, illness, rape, plastic surgery, and disabilities. The articles cover many different areas with a stress on the interdisciplinary links of contemporary feminist thought with philosophy, cultural studies, sociology and queer studies. What unites the various approaches represented is the understanding of the body as a site of contestation, the place where feminism can engage directly with the devaluation of women and move on to mobilize strategies of resistance.

Sport Masculinities and the Body

This groundbreaking work explores masculinity and the body within sports. Sports continue to retain expectations for presentations of specific forms of masculinity. The body is central to these presentations. These everyday bodily performances are rehearsed and performed either successfully or unsuccessfully - and the consequences of these actions play a significant part in the ability of the individual to continue to take part. Through participant observations, sporting life-history interviews (with over forty men) and research with children, this book examines the ways in which 'appropriate' sporting masculinities are learned and enacted to varying degrees of success. Wellard highlights the social processes which impact upon individual constructions and formulations of masculine identity and reviews these in relation to broader debates on gender, embodiment and sporting participation. This book contributes not only to the academic fields of sport and gender, but also to the efforts to confront continued forms of 'accepted' gender discrimination.

Raised by a single mother and a product of the Rion Lane housing project in Cincinnati, Ohio, author Stephen E. Hooks narrates both his memories and his discoveries as he struggled throughout the course of his life to establish his identity as an African American man. "Before I Loved Her, I Healed Myself" reveals Hooks's challenging childhood growing up without a strong male role model, the compelling influence of the women in his life (including his mother and grandmother), his foray into drug trafficking, and his playboy lifestyle. It exposes the deepest wounds he acquired on his life's journey and examines his quest to find the meaning of manhood. This memoir presents one man's chronicle of self-discovery in the process of finding love and purpose in life; it's story about pain, healing, restoration, and redemption. Via Hooks's emotional story, "Before I Loved Her, I Healed Myself" shows that transformation and personal growth are possible.

'A series of accidents has brought you this book. You may think of it not as a book, but as a library, an elevator, an amateur performance in a nearby theatre. Open it to the table of contents. Turn to the page that sounds the most interesting to you. Read a sentence or two. Repeat the process. Read this book as a creative act, and feel encouraged.' 39 Microlectures: In Proximity of Performance is a collection of miniature stories, parables, musings and thinkpieces on the nature of reading, writing, art, collaboration, performance, life, death, the universe and everything. It is a unique and moving document for our times, full of curiosity and wonder, thoughtfulness and pain. Matthew Goulish, founder member of performance group Goat Island, meditates on these and other diverse themes, proving, along the way, that the boundaries between poetry and criticism, and between creativity and theory, are a lot less fixed than they may seem. The book is revelatory, solemn yet at times hilarious, and genuinely written to inspire - or perhaps provoke - creativity and thought.
