Richard Cashman is at University of New South Wales.Review:
`Richard Cashman's comprehensive 'Paradise of Sport' is so welcome - even moreso because its subject is sport in Australian society...Cashman has provided us with the most informative and wide-ranging historical study of Australian sport yet produced. The contents of this book are exhaustive...it should appeal to both general and academic readers... wihtout doubt the most ambitious book yet written on the history of Australian sport...it is surely the standard academic text that novices and aficionados of our sporting culture have long needed.'
