Over the past year, a startling development has occurred in the mainstream press: sportswriters have started taking note of women who participate in violent sports. Such women include Tonya Butler, who wants to be the first woman to play in a Division I football game; Laila Ali, a professional boxer with a winning record, who wants to follow in her father's footsteps; and Margaret McGregor, the first woman to fight a man in a professional boxing bout (she won). But there have always been women who participated in contact sports. Think of the women's hockey team who competed in the 1998 Olympics they've been playing the game for years. Or consider the Golden Gloves Boxing Championships, which allowed female competitors since 1995. Or consider the case of Susan Booth, nobody famous, a gym owner, mother of two and fifth-degree (master) black belt in Tae Kwon Do. She's been fighting for fifteen years. That women have participated in violent sports for some years doesn't mean women in contact sports is accepted or considered acceptable by most people. The Title IX regulation, which is supposed to guarantee equal opportunity for female college athletes, specifically excludes contact sports from its gender equity statement women who wished to participate in contact sports at a college and are not allowed to do so can have claim against the school; legally they are not being discriminated against. Sportswriter Leigh Montville has attacked women's boxing as "a sick athletic cartoon." He claims that women participating in contact sports are being exploited. But the women involved don't seem to think so. "This is a dream of mine," says Freeda Foreman (daughter of George Foreman). "I want to let women know there are no limitations." Laila Ali says, "I just love how it feels." As female participation in violent sports such as boxing, hockey and martial arts grows, so do the questions. It can no longer be called a 'novelty' or a 'gimmick' as it has been in the past. So, why do women participate in violent sports and what does it mean? Including the author's personal experience as an athlete and the experiences and thoughts of other women in violent sports, some well-known, some not, all of them defying traditional gender roles. Through interviews and questionnaires with athletes, coaches and observers as well as trained mental health professionals interested in the phenomenon, the reasons why women participate in contact sports and what they get out of them are examined.

The English humour magazine "Punch, or the London Charivari," which first appeared in 1841, quickly became something of a national institution with a large and multi-layered readership. Though comic in tone, "Punch" was deeply serious about upholding high literary and artistic standards, about dealing with serious subject-matter, and about attempting to nurture its readers' appreciation of the national drama and of Shakespeare's plays in particular. The author's detailed examination of "Punch's" constant advocacy of Shakespeare reveals telling new evidence concerning the ubiquitous presence of Shakespeare within Victorian culture. New research in the "Punch" archives and elsewhere also reveals the identities of many of the "Punch" authors and artists. The author shows how those who worked for "Punch" often subsumed their collective identities within the single persona of Mr. Punch, a fictional creation who repeatedly presents himself in both texts and graphics as a close friend and admirer of Shakespeare, a man able to remind Victorian readers constantly of the supreme literary and moral values represented by Shakespeare's works.

This book presents the discussion of Earthenware and Celadon, tracing the emergence and development of new design approaches, techniques and colouring that influenced Korean ceramic art during the Choson Kingdom (1392-1910). 'White Porcelain and Punch’ong ware' examines a gradual shift by Korean potters towards simple elegance accompanied by the growth of Confucianism in Korea. Jae-yeol Kim explains how Punch’ong ware and White Porcelain are the two most important traditions in the Choson dynasty and thus reflect through ceramics the history of its time. The artistic interplay of tradition and creativity is examined through 210 full-colour photographs that closely accompany the narrative. The ceramic works featured in this book guide the reader through five centuries of Korean history and artistic creation.

Short-listed for the 2008 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Crime Novel Joe Grundy is an ex-heavyweight boxer whose main claim to fame was that he got knocked out by champ Evander Holyfield. Now he’s chief of security for a posh old hotel, the Lord Douglas, in downtown Vancouver, and life is pretty good. But then a young neo-hippie inherits more than half a billion dollars and decides to give it all away. As soon as the kid checks into the Lord Douglas with the intention of holding a press conference to announce the scheme, Joe knows big trouble is headed his way, especially when the kid winds up dead. Grundy sets out to discover who murdered the would-be philanthropist only to collide with suspects and sucker punches around every corner.
