The Culture of Bruising: Essays on Prizefighting, Literature, and Modern American Culture

Gerald Early

The Culture of Bruising is a collection of essays on race and culture. The sport of boxing is at the heart of the book because the author regards it as a metaphor for the way a culture can bruise the individual. Topics covered discussed in the pieces include multiculturalism, baseball, Malcolm X, and Black History Month.
