This book is an historical survey of womena€™s sport from 1850-1960. It looks at some of the more recent methodological approaches to writing sports history and raises questions about how the history of womena€™s sport has so far been shaped by academic writers. Questions explored in this text include: What are the fresh perspectives and newly available sources for the historian of womena€™s sport? How do these take forward established debates on womena€™s place in sporting culture and what novel approaches do they suggest? How can our appreciation of fashion, travel, food and medical history be advanced by looking at womena€™s involvement in sport? How can we use some of the current ideas and methodologies in the recent literature on the history and sociology of sport in order to look afresh at womena€™s participation? Jean Williamsa€™s original research on these topics and more will be a useful resource for scholars in the fields of sports, womena€™s studies, history and sociology.... 24 Hours race.
