Summary: "The Sports Immortals" is the first study to systematically apply the classic theories of psychology and anthropology to sport to present a model of the ways in which we create mythical figures out of actual individuals. Peter Williams begins with the theories of thinkers like Jung, Frazer, and Otto Rank and then shows their application, first to sport itself, then, more specifically, to American sport, and particula...rly to baseball. The result is a clear illustration of the way in which we insist on making archetypes out of our heroes, and how this process is the same today as it was in ancient Athens and before.

Peter Williams is the author of The Sports Immortals: Deifying the American Athlete (Sports and Culture), published 1994 under ISBN 9780879726690 and 0879726695.
