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.

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

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)!
