Summary

This work is an historical survey of women's sport across the twentieth century and into the present day. Although the transfer from traditional to modern forms shifted noticeably in the eighteenth century, and accelerated in the nineteenth, this book's focus is on the contemporary debates around women's participation in the period that follows. It looks at some of the more recent methodological approaches to writing sports history and raises questions about how the history of women's sport has so far been shaped by academic writers. Questions explored in this text include: What are the fresh perspectives and newly available sources for the historian of women's sport? How do these take forward established debates on the women's place in sporting culture and what novel approaches do they suggest? How can our appreciation of fashion, travel, food and medical history be advanced by looking at women's involvement in sport? How can we use some of the current ideas and methodologies in the recent literature on the history and sociology of sport in order to look afresh at women's participation? Jean Williams's original research on these topics and more will be a useful resource for scholars in the fields of sports, women's studies, history and sociology.
