Follow Martial Arts and more through this work. It explains how the dominant fight sports in the United States have changed over time in response to broad shifts in American culture and ideals of manhood, and presents a narrative of American history as seen from the bars, gyms, stadiums and living rooms of the heartland. Ordinary Americans were the agents who supported and participated in fight sports and determined its vision of masculinity.

Particular interest of mine was Chapter 3, 'Asian Martial Arts Comes to the US, 1850-1941'
