Dave Day’s edited collection from 2011, Sporting Lives (MMU Institute for Performance Research) originates from a Sporting Lives symposium hosted by MMU Cheshire, and must be considered a modern sport history classic. John S. Hellström is our reviewer, and he finds the sum of the parts to be most rewarding, even though some individual contributions are highly readable. Shame, though, that only one of eleven chapters is written about a women.
