Editorial Reviews

?This book is an excellent piece of work. Read it. Use it. Divided into fourteen chapters, the book covers such areas as: history of sports; sports and the traditional arts; sports and education; sports and popular culture; sports and aggression; sports and war; sports, race, and sex. Professor Higgs read widely and intelligently in preparing his book and it shows. Unlike many so-called "guides," this one contains both a significant bibliographical store and a well written text. Each chapter provides factual materials and critical commentary for a reader to weigh and assimilate. ... Both the book's appendices are quite valuable. ... The book is valuable for nearly anyone working with sport. For the novice, it opens completely new vistas. For the experienced, it broadens and extends by treating areas complementary to a specialty. ... Sports: A Reference Guide is a useful, lucid, intelligent contribution to sports scholarship.?-Journal of Sport History
