“Boxing, the Gym, and Men is an insightful ethnographic account of marginalized young people of the French banlieue. Without being romantic, it explains how they make meaning of their precarious lives through the experience of boxing. Informative and compelling, this scholarly work is also deeply moving ─ it is an important contribution to our understanding of immigration and disfranchisement in the social fabric of French urban life and culture.”

“In its fine tuned phenomenological attentiveness to how boxers make sense of their experience by ‘working through’ their bodies, Beauchez’s carnal ethnography perfectly captures the vivid and nuanced immediacy of an embodiment in which domination is the key theme of both the fighters’ encounters in the ring and their subaltern social circumstances.”
