In this panoramic book the author traces the evolution of rowing from the Vikings and Venetians to the modern era of top-flight coaching and international competition. Rowing has come a long way since 168 oarsman hauled the Doge of Venice along in his golden barge, or since Cambridge crews floated about in the days of British amateurism. This century has seen rowing as a sport transformed by the impact of scientific methods and great coaches, and by the crushing dominance of the East Germans. Competitive and amateur rowing has many of its origins in Britain and the author examines the development of some of the great events such as Henley Royal Regatta, the Olympic Games and the European and World Championships. The author is the Rowing and Deputy Features Editor of "The Guardian" newspaper.
