Editorial Reviews

As European imperialism expanded across the glove, European sports were imported alongside the more commonly studied phenomena of politics, goods, ideas, and customs. Mangan (sport, socialization, and society, U. of Strathclyde, Glasgow) gathers 11 contributions that look at sports in the context of the first phase of globalization (i.e. the rise of the European empires).
