From Ritual to Record by Allen Guttmann From Ritual to Record, Paperback (July 2004)

Originally published in 1978, this book was one of the first to recognize the importance of sports as a lens on the fundamental structure of societies. In this reissue, Guttmann emphasizes the many ways that modern sports, dramatically different from the sports of previous eras, have profoundly shaped contemporary life.

Women's Sports by Allen Guttmann Women's Sports, Paperback (February 1992)

This study traces the development of women's sports from antiquity to the present day, focusing on the role of women's athletics in a cultural and social context. It investigates various contemporary issues, such as sexual exploitation and the feasibility of competition between men and women.
