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.
The anthology «Methodology in Sports History», edited by Wray Vamplew and Dave Day (Routledge) seemed to be just what the supervisor ordered for a Ph.D. student at a crucial point in the dissertation process. For our reviewer Robert Svensson, however, it was somewhat of a disappointment. The book confuses method with methodology, and deals more with history in general than with sport history.
