Description - Sport, Economy and Society in Britain 1750-1914 by Neil Tranter

Neil Tranter draws on the recent surge of academic interest in this topic to provide a concise, up-to-date survey of a dramatic change in the cultural life of Victorian and Edwardian Britain: the radical transformation in the extent and nature of Britain's involvement in sports. Neil Tranter examines key questions such as the principal features of this new sporting culture, how and why it spread, and the economic consequences of this cultural change. He also looks at who the particpants were, and to what extent women were involved in this sporting "revolution."
