Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The lengthy subtitle of this 1994 volume sums up the contents. The text offers the history of the game as well as its sociological influence, but especially nice are the 200 monochrome and color illustrations and photos, from vintage to modern. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
