Summary

This highly-acclaimed survey of American sports offers a reflective, analytical history from the colonial era to the present. With a focus on the historical relationship between sports, and gender, class, race, ethnicity, religion, and region, the book considers how sports transcend these fundamental categories, and how the experience of sports either as a player or as a fan can bind diverse groups together. The book also looks at how sports at various historical moments have reinforced or challenged the values and behaviors of society.
