International Sport: A Bibliography, 2000 An Index to Sports History Journals, Conference Proceedings and Essay Collections

By Richard William Cox Copyright 2002

    There has been an explosion in the quantity of sports history literature published in recent years, making it increasingly difficult to keep abreast of developments. The annual number of publications has increased from around 250 to 1,000 a year over the last decade. This is due in part to the fact that during the late 1980s and 90s, many clubs, leagues and governing bodies of sport have celebrated their centenaries and produced histories to mark this occasion and commemorate their achievements. It is also the result of the growing popularity and realisation of the importance of sport history research within academe.
    This international bibliography of books, articles, conference proceedings and essays in the English language is a one-stop for the sports historian to know what is new.
