AUTHOR

Wigglesworth, Neil

SUMMARY

A fascinating history of the English experience of sport, following its development through the centuries from its earliest beginnings in social play and pastimes, via its adoption as an alternative to the clock-watching routine of urban life, to its modern incarnation as a global business. Along the way, key themes and issues in the evolution of sport are examined, including: social structures, such as the division between amateurs and professionals the growth of the popular press and the influence of television the post-war emergence of sports 'welfarism' and 'sport for all' globalization and commercialization. Continuing the story up to the present and looking ahead to the future, the author asks whether our sports experience is turning full circle, and if in the twenty-first century we are returning to a forgotten view of sport as a pastime and recreation.Wigglesworth, Neil is the author of 'Story of English Sport ', published 2007 under ISBN 9780415353816 and ISBN 0415353815.
