Description
"Dyreson's well-written, well-researched book is the first scholarly work to establish the historical origins of American cultural sentiment linking Olympic performance to national importance. . . . Fortunately. . . this is not another positivist read on episodes of Olympic glory. . . . Should be commended for its breadth of research and for its critical insights on American sports leaders." -- Kevin B. Wamsley,Labour/Le Travail"An excellent addition to the wealth of Olympic literature, most notably the historically based works of Guttmann, and also draws on the multitude of American themess within the Games. Importantly it demonstrates the political use of sport in America." -- Mike Cronin,The Sports Historian"An example of the history of ideas applied to the history of sport. . . . A welcome addition to the literature." -- Tony Mason,Labour History Review
