Description
 
Adrian Shubert. Bullfighting has long been perceived as an antiquated, barbarous legacy from Spainís medieval past. In fact, many in Spain have accepted the corrida as the embodiment of Spainís rejection of the modern world. The modern bullfight did not emerge until the early 18th century & was far from being an archaic remnant of the past -- it was a precursor of the 20th century mass leisure industry. Shubert analyzes the business of the sport -- replete with promoters, agents, journalists, & well-paid bullfighters who were exploited to endorse products -- & explores the bullfighterís world: their social & geographic origins, careers, & social status. Illustrated.
