This work examines how the individual player moves toward a religious enlightenment through sport. It argues that this spiritual enlightenment is uniquely her or his own without the trappings of doctrinal creeds or traditional religious discourse. The spiritual dimension of sport is examined from a 'non-confessional' point of view (unique human experience per se is emphasized); no association with any religion needs to be made. This is in contrast to a 'confessional' approach to sport and spirituality studies (understandings of sport within specific religious traditions). How does sport serve as spiritual practice in the life of the individual, especially for the person who may not actually have any religious affiliation? Among sports included in the book are sky diving, motorcycle riding, long distance running, spelunking, scuba diving and solo sailing. Each sporting orbit or topos is then amplified by analogy with myths and rituals from world religions where applicable. Autobiographical testimonies of sporting people are used to suggest how sport can be bonafide spiritual practice. The argument is that lives are empowered not by brute strength and tenacity alone, but also by sustaining personal coherence within the lived experience of one's sporting activities.

Funding Transport Systems

RRP $258.99

Our transportation networks are the basic infrastructure supporting our daily life and economic activities and are in constant need of improvement and maintenance - but who should pay for their improvement? The state through direct and indirect taxes? The user through tolls and fares? The transport operator? And who should pay for the environmental impact?

This book discusses the basic concept and practical conditions of financial resources for transportation systems. After describing the theoretical basis of burden, the book introduces the policies and financial systems established for transportation in some developed countries (Germany, France, UK, USA, Japan) and compares them from an analysis viewpoint. The book then offers a methodology for comparing the structure of financial resources and presents calculations based on the investment amounts the different groups (eg. transport operators, the state) must contribute to sustain and improve the transport system.

In the first half of the book, the focus is on what positions each country takes in regard to:
1) The responsibility of the public sector and the range of participation by the private sector
2) The balance of burden covered by general funds and that covered by users
3) The balance of burden covered by present financial resources and that as set aside for the future as debt.

The second half clarifies how such national policies are reflected in the actual financial resources. Here, after a detailed review of the financial systems related to transportation in various countries, a methodology for an international comparison of financial resources for the improvements of transportation systems is shown.
