Body by Weimar

Athletes, Gender, and German Modernity

Erik N. Jensen

  • Cutting edge scholarship on the body
  • Intersection of sports history; works on gender and the body; and histories of the society and culture of Germany's Weimar Republic
  • Reveals that women's boxing and many of the developments attributed to Title XI have a history that stretches back to 1920s Germany
  • Argues for a new look at Weimar Germany as a society marked not simply by crisis in the negative sense, but also by crisis in the positive sense - a time and place where anxiety, debate and experimentation led to remarkable innovations
