About this item

Sports history is no longer a marginal academic subject. It has now been recognised that sport is a significant cultural activity that matters to billions of people and ought to be studied by academic researchers. Correctly practised, sports history is a counter to nostalgia, myth, and invented tradition. It can be considered the sports memory of a nation: without sports history there is sporting amnesia. The respected editors of this major work have brought together some of the best and most challenging work in the field for the first time. Covering a wide range of sports, regions, debates, approaches and eras, Sports History is a comprehensive collection, divided across four themed volumes:
  • Volume One: An Unfinished Journey
