From the Publisher:

Revised to give greater attention to continuities in the American sporting experience, this widely-acclaimed book offers a gracefully written, analytical history of American sports from the colonial era to the present. Acutely sensitive to clarity and style, it gives emphasis to the historical relationship between sports and such major social cleavages as class, race, ethnicity, gender, and region, as well as the power that sports have exercised in binding diverse peoples together.
