From Ritual to Record: The Nature of Modern Sports Book Description

Originally published in 1978, "From Ritual to Record" was one of the first books to recognize the importance of sports as a lens on the fundamental structure of societies. In this reissue, Guttmann emphasizes the many ways that modern sports, dramatically different from the sports of previous eras, have profoundly shaped contemporary life.
