American Review of Canadian Studies
The one-two punch of David Whitson and Richard Gruneau is fast gaining the reputation of being the academic equivalent of the New York Islanders' prolific on-ice tandem of Bryan Trottier and Mike Bossy. Following upon their ealier collaboration, Hockey Night in Canada, the duo assembled a gifted cast of academics to write Artificial Ice. The final product is a set of twelve well-crafted essays that are informative and insightful. This edited volume shows the cultural implications of hockey, not only in Canada but globally, as well as the economic and political side of the sport.
