Midland History is a refereed journal which prints articles on midlands subjects from professional and independent historians and research students in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: ‘With No Cinder Path for Track Training, Our Position Is Hopeless’: The Development of Athletics Facilities in Birmingham, 1879-1929 by Luke J. Harris.
The chapters in Sporting Cultures: Global Perspectives (MMU Sport and Leisure History) arose from the 4th International Colloquium for Sport History held at Manchester Metropolitan University, Crewe, in spring 2018. The collection is edited by Nick Piercey & Samantha-Jayne Oldfield, and it is reviewed here by Swedish sport historian Björn Sandahl. Our reviewer finds that the collection successfully challenges traditional approaches to sport history.
