Product Description

Review

' … 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

Book Description

This is the first synthesis of its kind, and Neil Tranter provides here a concise survey of the emergence of organised, codifed, recognisably modern forms of sport. He examines the key questions in this dramatic change in the cultural life of Britain, and provides a comprehensive bibliography to enable the reader to pursue these questions in greater detail.

First Sentence
From the dawn of human civilisation, it seems, the need for some form of sporting physical recreation has been almost as imperative to human beings as the need to procreate, work and eat. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
I bought this for a Sports Studies module and it was crucial to understand a few key points during this era. Didn't help my grades though (not the books fault)!

I expected a better cost/benefit. But it is ok considering the quality of the research the author made about sport
