Product Description

Review

Rightly lauded in hardback a year ago, this affordable paperback edition places sport within the context not just of British history but of the people's history. (Independent)

this is an outstanding history of sport's social role in nineteenth and twentieth-century Britain ... everyone can learn from Holt's approach to sports history (Economic History Review)

an ideal introductory text ... The range and richness of the subjects are inviting to historians, and Holt supplies us with an indispensable vade-mecum. (English Historical Review)

I bought this for a Sports Studies module and it was crucial to understand a few key points. Richard Holt is a name you definitely should have in your references if you're studying Sport in History.

I felt the information in this book could have been much better organised. It was well written for a book giving information (so many read as if they have lifted chunks out of the thesis they wrote), but would have benefitted from better editing. the information about periods and about sports & leisure activities seemed scattered about, rather than following themes. It was partially chronological but individual sports were expanded in different sections.
