9780195535686: The Oxford Companion to Australian Sport

This is a revised, and greatly expanded new edition of an authoritative reference work on all sports played in Australia. It provides a comprehensive overview of the history and character of the innumerable codes that constitute the Australian sporting character. The Companion offers succinct and informative entries on famous sportsmen and women, and on major institutions, competitions and venues. The Companion also offers thematic essays on crucial aspects of the history, culture and professionalization of sport in Australia. For the second edition, the editors have commissioned four major new thematic essays on coaching, disabled sportsmen and women, regionalism and the Olympic Winter Games. Seven more sports have been added (badminton, bicycle racing, curling, fives, petanque, ring bowls and surfing), along with 38 additional clubs. The second edition boasts 240 new biographies.
