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:
The International Society for the History of Physical Education and Sport (ISHPES) has launched the Call for Papers of its 19th International Congress to be held in Münster (Germany) in 2018, July 18-21. The general topic will be “Sport for All – History of a Vision Around the World”.

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.
