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’.
