Description: Sports are such an integral part of human culture throughout history. In this fascinating and wide-ranging volume, sports historian David G. McComb uses the history of sports as a window into world history and society. This fully illustrated volume examines not only the sports with which we're familiar, but also sports from around the world that might be unfamiliar. These include the ball games of Mesoamerica, sumo wrestling in Japan, martial arts in China, wrestling in Ancient Egypt, the Olympics of classical Greece, and the gladiators of Rome. Author David McComb discusses the competition of knights in tournaments and medieval peasants in ballgames as well as the emergence of modern sports. The history of cricket, soccer, rugby, baseball, football, basketball, hockey, golf, tennis, bicycle racing, skiing, and other contemporary sports make up the main part of the book. Woven into the narration are comments about the role of women, African Americans, amateur sports, media, stadia, organizations, and the people who changed sports history.
