Description - Going to the Dogs: A History of Greyhound Racing in New South Wales by Max Solling
Greyhound racing has a contentious history in New South Wales-2017 was not the first time that its existence was threatened, and it probably won't be the last. Now, for the first time, a comprehensive history of the sport has been collected, deftly charting the highs and lows from coursing and tin-hare racing all the way through to the current controversies. In many ways the underdog of the racing world, greyhounds, and the people who own, train and race them, are here given the attention they deserve. This is essential reading for anyone with an interest in "the sport of the people".
