Pressestimmen

' ... extremely welcome ... and excellent introduction to the issues which historians of sport confront, and sets out the findings of the most recent research in an exemplary way ... an admirable book, and it is difficult to see how it could have been done better'. History 'Tranter has produced an important book. It should enable a wide range of teachers to introduce sports history to a cross disciplinary audience; an area of study that has often been trivialised, yet one that has been central to the fabric of British life since pre-industrialisation.' Journal of European Area Studies
