AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Brian Stoddart reflects on his passion for sports culture. He writes: 'In order to understand the historical contours of sport in any given location, one needs to know a lot more than the sport itself. It is for that very reason that as much of my reading has been oustide as it has been inside sport. The point is to be driven either by the sport into the wider world or by the wider world back into the sport - and not to be driven so much by theory as by a search for meaning.'
