Product description

Synopsis

The contributors to this collection of essays explore the symbolic meanings that have been attached to sport in Europe by considering some of the mythic heroes who have dominated the sporting landscapes of their own countries, including W.G. Grace, Jean Borotra, Max Schmeling, Raymond Kopa and Gina Bartoli. The ambition is to understand what these icons stood for in the eyes of those who watched or read about them.
