Overview: Thing and Jensen use Norbert Elias's process sociological perspective to discuss the development of gymnastic culture in Denmark. They present two case studies to illustrate how gymnastics - in collaboration with the state - attempts to provide citizens with compentencies and qualifications that are in keeping with the spirit of Denmark bodily movement culture. The authors' aim is to supply an understanding of the past in order to explain the present and highlight the future development of gymnastic culture in Denmark.
