The Criminology of Boxing, Violence and Desistance by Deborah Jump Book Summary:
This book unpacks how effective boxing actually is in reducing violent attitudes, and how to ensure that the messages in the gym environment do not support negative attitudes often found outside the ring. Using classic desistance literature, case studies, and life history interviewing drawn from a psychosocial perspective, it builds on techniques that uncover the more clandestine reasons for choosing boxing. Using case studies, it reveals stories of men's victimhood, either via gang violence, domestic violence, or structural disadvantage, and tells the story of how boxing reshaped their identities and self-concepts, and how the gym came to represent a fraternity and a 'island of stability and order'. Additionally, it presents arguments that suggest that boxing is not all that it seems in the eyes of the criminal justice system, and while it has its benefits, it also has a darker side that is coterminous with hyper-masculine discourses of violence, respect, and avoidance of shame.
The Alternative View of a Boxers Record by Jim McMillan Book Summary:
Professional boxing in the UK during the 1980s & 90s was dominated by the big time promoters & managers Mickey Duff, Harry Levene, Jarvis Astaire and Terry Lawless and their BBC television contracts, until Frank Warren came along and challenged the establishment backed by ITV. Next on the scene was Barry Hearn with his SKY connections and amongst them arose Frank Malony backed by the fruadster financier Rodger Levett. This book is not about them but instead is the story of a small time boxing stable and fighters striving for success and trying to beat their opponents and the system. A boxers record is more than a simple win-loss or draw and this story presents the alternative view.

The Boxers, China, and the World by Robert A. Bickers,R. G. Tiedemann Book Summary:
In 1900, China chose to take on imperialism by fighting a war with the world on the parched north China plain. This multidisciplinary volume explores the causes behind what is now known as the Boxer War, examining its particular cruelties and its impact on China, foreign imperialism in China, and on the foreign imagination. This war introduced the world to the "Boxers," the seemingly fanatical, violent xenophobes who, believing themselves invulnerable to foreign bullets, died in their thousands in front of foreign guns. But 1900 also saw the imperialism of the 1890s checked and the Qing rulers of China move to embark on a series of shattering reforms. The Boxers have often been represented as a force from China's past, resisting an enforced modernity. Here, expert contributors argue that this rebellion was instead a wholly modern resistance to globalizing power, representing new trends in modern China and in international relations. The allied invasion of north China in late summer 1900 was the first multinational intervention in the name of "civilization," with the issues and attendant problems that have become all too familiar in the early twenty-first century. Indeed, understanding the Boxer rising and the Boxer war remains a pressing contemporary issue. This volume will appeal to readers interested in modern Chinese, East Asian, and European history as well as the history of imperialism, colonialism, warfare, missionary work, and Christianity. Contributions by: C. A. Bayly, Lewis Bernstein, Robert Bickers, Paul A. Cohen, Henrietta Harrison, James L. Hevia, Ben Middleton, T. G. Otte, Roger R. Thompson, R. G. Tiedemann, and Anand A. Yang.

Women Boxers by N.A Book Summary:
Combining the artistry of photographer Delilah Montoya with an informative introduction written by professor and librarian Maria Teresa Marquez, Women Boxers: The New Warriors explores the world of las malcriadas, those women who challenge society's views of femininity, violence, and physicality. Montoya's photographs profile twelve powerful, devoted athletes who are taking advantage of the Women's Movement and the right to live, work, and box in a man's world. The boxers featured are from all over the United States, and include super bantamweight Jackie Chavez, holder of the IFBA Super Bantamweight Title, light middleweight Akondaye "Storm" Fountain, welterweight Christy "Coalminer's Daughter" Martin, and lightweight Mia "The Knockout" St. John, holder of the IBA Women's Lightweight Title and the IFBA Lightweight World Title. The introductory essay succinctly traces the phenomenon of women boxers, noting that as early as 1728 boxing matches between women were reported in London newspapers. Since 1997, women's amateur boxing competitions have been held in Europe, Africa, and Asia; countries such as Egypt, India and Kazakhstan are among 28 countries represented in women's boxing organizations. And women's amateur boxing may be sanctioned soon for the first time as an Olympic sport. In spite of the increased popularity of women's boxing, it remains controversial. Many still believe that women boxers are simply women who make a living by selling their bodies. Women boxers struggle to get televised matches and suitable prize money, and many boxing promoters refuse to support fights between female boxers. With an essay by C. Ondine Chavoya tracing Montoya's artistic career, this is a rareand fascinating look at the sport of women's boxing.
