CFP: Pro-Wrestling anthology (9/30/04; collection)

Sunday, July 25, 2004 - 2:51pm
Leon Hunt

The editors of The Pro-Wrestling Book are seeking essays on all aspects of Professional Wrestling. The book's starting point is that wrestling, notwithstanding its 'low' cultural status, is an important topic for analysis both for its intrinsic qualities and for what it tells us about culture and entertainment. The book proposes to deal with wrestling in broad terms, inevitably exploring the powerful WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) organisation, but also looking at other styles and traditions. Accordingly, the book will consider the historical development of wrestling and the role it has played in different cultures.
