Review:

"The most intriguing parts of the book are where historical details of specific sports--cricket, soccer, Gaelic football, hurling, speed skating, baseball--are offered as evidence for the essayists' arguments on how the local interacts with outside forces, whether protecting, mimicking or influencing." (YaleGlobal Online Magazine, May 2009)
