We proudly announce the publication of the book Horse Racing and British Society in the Long Eighteenth Century by Mike Huggins, CESH president.
Please find below a link to the book:
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’.
Please find bellow the link to the book “L’Europe du football. Socio-histoire d’une construction européenne” recently edited by William Gasparini:
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.
