Review

"An intriguing look at the problematic relationship sport has with alcohol." --"The Bookseller"
"Packed with informative and entertaining detail [and] written with exemplary clarity." --The "Guardian Weekend"
"Unputdownably fascinating [and] original, not to say intoxicating." --"The Guardian Sport Section"
"Tony Collins and Wray Vamplew have left no stone unturned, nor glass undrained, in their researches . . . A thoughtful and thought-provoking book." --"Programme Monthly and Football Collectable"
"The chronological range of the book is impressive . . . Equally laudable is the author's ability to use a vast array of archival sources, from sporting records, brewary accounts, government reports and social commentary, to contextualize the sport-alcohol relationship within awide range of political, social and economic histories . . . "In Mud Sweat and Beers," an approach is found that champions the study of a sporting theme, but which cannot be ignored by historians of any aspect of British life." --"Journal of Contemporary history"
"This study is recommended for all students and scholars of the history and culture of sports." --"Choice"
