Explore the rich history of sport with sports history books, ebooks, and textbooks for instructors. Our sport history textbooks for higher education are perfect for undergraduate and graduate programs. Follow the history of sport through the colonization and industrialization of North America through the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Understand how a climate of social reform, war, and economic turbulence affected sport in the early 20th century. Uncover the impact of globalization, consumerism, sports media, and television broadcasting on sport. Our professional references highlight the achievements of athletes of color, female athletes, and other athletes from marginalized groups. They create a dialogue around the interconnected world of sport, culture, race, religion, and socio-economic status. Our resources are ideal for researching the history of the recreational, intercollegiate, and professional sporting communities.
