Recommended by Allen Guttmann, leading American historian of sport who says:

‘Mike Huggins has carried out a prodigious amount of research into primary and secondary sources and used the research to produce a major work of sports history that is really much more than sports history.  His study of horse racing is actually a political, economic, social, and cultural interpretation of 18th-century Britain as seen through the prism of its most important sport. He has done a beautiful job of organizing a vast amount of material into a coherent and continually interesting narrative’.

Lancillotto & Nausica, Nr 48, Special Issue (bilingual It-Eng)

Special issue of Lancillotto & Nausica, Nr 48

SPORT or TROPS?

This new issue of Lancillotto e Nausica (nr. 1-2/2017 f. 48 – 136 pages) is slightly different from the previous ones:

1) A text guides the reader through a progression of reflexions and connections in order to analyse – pieces by pieces – the concept of SPORT;

2) A sequence of images uses the autonomous language of photography to propose metaphorical considerations expressed in the guiding text;

3) The captions written by writers, novelists, journalists and poets, interpret according their feelings the pictures chosen as emblems of the various moment and aspects of SPORT.
