About this title


A unique contribution to the study of sport, this bibliography contains more than 1300 citations of books, articles, documents, unpublished theses, and other sources relating to the practice and study of sport in Latin America from before the European conquest to the present. The majority of the citations include annotations designed to convey information about the contents, special features, and interpretive or ideological thrust of the publication listed. Selected studies of sport and recreation in the Iberian peninsula and within the Hispanic communities of North America are also included, along with 40 unannotated general and theoretical studies which provide useful background information for those just beginning their study of sport. Materials cited are written principally in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, with some selections in French, Italian, and German.

Following an introductory section on the theory and history of sport, the bibliography is divided into six principal parts covering indigenous traditions, the Iberian background of Latin American sport, the colonial era, the national period, Hispanic sports in the United States, and current Latin American sports periodicals. The section on the national period is further subdivided by country. In each section, the general criteria for inclusion was that the work in question offer some analytical perspective or contain material which would help to develop such a perspective. In cases where historical or analytical studies were unavailable technical manuals or rule books were included to demonstrate the practice of certain sports and games in certain periods. Subject and author indexes facilitate access to the main listings. As the most comprehensive list of sources available on the subject of Latin American sport, this volume will be indispensable to researchers and students in the field.
