The International Journal of the History of Sport, Volume 33, 2016, Issue 16

The International Journal of the History of Sport is the world’s leading sport history academic periodical with fully-refereed global coverage of the subject. As well as regular issues, the IJHS also offers regionally-focused issues on the Americas, Africa, Asia, Australasia and the Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East, and special issues each year on significant topics and themes.

Sport and economy are connected! And here’s how it works.

It is not an everyday occasion that the historical development of sport is considered by economic historians. But a new anthology, Sports Through the Lens of Economic History by Richard Pomfret & John K. Wilson (Edward Elgar) aims at filling that gap. Not bad, concedes our reviewer Susanna Hedenborg; still, a wider geographical scope would have increased the efficacy of the this rather slim volume.
