The nineteenth century was a golden age in British sports. Not only were sports immensely popular, but they began to assume the forms and qualities that still characterise them today. Moreover, the latter part of the century saw a significant participation in sports by women, and this book provides the first overall examination of this early development and the social changes that it helped to bring about. Since women’s entry into sports was chiefly a consequence of the campaign for better female education, the book begins with an account of sports at the Oxbridge women’s colleges, at the girls' public schools and at the new women’s physical training colleges. It then examines team sports such as hockey, lacrosse, and cricket and individual sports such as tennis, golf and cycling. Other chapters discuss the medical attitudes and prejudices toward women’s participation in sports and the role of sports in changing female dress.

Nineteen-twenty was a crucial year not just for the Chicago White Sox but for the game of baseball, in the aftermath of the 1919 World Series scandal. This work is both a collective biography of four individuals whose careers in baseball were forever altered in 1920 and an examination of the 1920 baseball season as a whole. It highlights four legendary personalities--Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis, the longtime commissioner of Major League Baseball; Babe Ruth, the great pitcher and slugger who changed the game forever; Buck Weaver, the true lone innocent among the Black Sox players who threw the 1919 World Series; and Rube Foster, the fine pitcher, imaginative manager, and great administrator of blackball who founded the Negro National League. Key events that affected the season and the history of baseball are discussed. Nineteen-twenty was the year that Ruth shattered his own home run record and began a hitting spree that brought in record numbers of fans to the ballparks. It was the year that Rube found a way for large numbers of African-Americans to play the game meaningfully, before loyal crowds, despite Jim Crow laws that kept them out of the majors and minors. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

Excerpt from Baily's Magazine of Sports and Pastimes, 1878, Vol. 31 An ambassador on a coach-box would, twenty years ago or less, have been considered in an anomalous position. We had very few coachmen ourselves then, and those there were hid their lights under bushels. With the rather contemptuous Opinion that English men used to entertain of the Sporting tastes and pursuits of all foreigners, we should have scouted the idea that a German could drive. But the world has marched with wonderful strides in twenty years, and in the development of Sport in all its branches conti nental nations, especially France and Germany, have shown a remarkable proficiency. Racing, hunting, driving, are no longer the gift and heritage of Englishmen alone, and if imitation is the sincerest flattery we ought to be a proud people indeed. Count Munster is a Sportsman in his own country, and his love of coaching we need scarcely dwell upon here. No meet of the four-in-hand Club would be complete without His Excellency driving his well known chestnuts with the Countess Olga by his side. Eminently popular in English society, his liking for a good old English pastime is an additional claim to the kindly feeling with which he is regarded.
