This book is an historical survey of womenas sport from 1850-1960. It looks at some of the more recent methodological approaches to writing sports history and raises questions about how the history of womenas 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 womenas sport? How do these take forward established debates on womenas place in sporting culture and what novel approaches do they suggest?

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 womenas participation?
