"The Fifth Edition of this book offers an analytical history of American sports from the colonial era to the present. It gives special attention to the meanings of sports in historical contexts and the historical relationship between sports and such social cleavages as class, race, ethnicity, gender and region as well as the power that sports have exercised in binding diverse peoples together."--BOOK JACKET.
