    a| Annotation b| "This is the first in-depth study of sporting culture in Britain during the first half of the nineteenth century that is based upon sporting periodicals, newspapers and sporting archives. Harvey depicts a society not suffering from a severe attack on recreations by commerce, industry and government, but in which the principal problems experienced stemmed from criminal activity. As such, this book provides a much-needed revision of many misconceptions about the early history of sport in Britain."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
