In this provocative and original monograph, Krier and Swart argue that NASCAR and the carnivalesque displays at Sturgiss mass motorcycle rallies reveal how spectator events of this scale have come to function as intensive sites of profit making in contemporary capitalism. The authors lucidly trace the historical development of these economic spectacles and analyze the structural components that sustain them.
