The Oxford Companion to Australian Sport( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 1997 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Australia is a nation of sporting enthusiasts, as famous throughout the world for its athletes as for its sporting obsessions. The Oxford Companion to Australian Sport is the first authoritative and encyclopaedic reference on sport in Australia. Produced by the Australian Society for Sports History, in association with the Australian Sports Commission, The Oxford Companion to Australian Sport provides the first cohesive overview of the temper and development of the innumerable codes that constitute the Australian sporting character. Associate Professor Wray Bamplew and his four co-editors - all noted sports historians and authors - provide readers with almost 1000 entries on everything from 'Bodyline' to pigeon-racing. All sports are covered, not just the major ones like cricket, Australian Rules, rugby, lawn tennis and horse-racing. The Companion offers succinct and informative entries on orienteering, parachuting, hang-gliding and korfball, as well as countless short entries on famous and influential sportsmen and women, and on significant institutions, competitions and venues. The Companion also offers major thematic essays on crucial aspects of the history, proliferation and increasing professionalisation of sport in Australia. There are entries on sports medicine and sports management, which are major growth areas. The cultural influence of sport, as represented in art and literature, is discussed in separate entries, as are more contentious subjects such as violence in sport, crowd disorder, and obsessiveness about sport. For the first time, readers have access to biographies of sporting champions from countless sporting codes. Philip Anderson, Raelene Boyle, Ron Barassi, the Chappell brothers, Dawn Fraser, Joan Hammond, Keith Miller and John Newcombe all rub shoulders in this literary pantheon. Unrivalled in scope and scholarship, The Oxford Companion to Australian Sport presents a readable cultural history of Australian sport which captures its diversity, its scandals and legends, and its formidable hold on the Australian imagination. It is essential reading for sportsmen and women, sporting administrators, scholars, journalists, and the great mass of sports followers

16 editions published between 1988 and 2004 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sport in Australia : a social history( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2008 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Australia is often seen as a sport-obsessed nation, its people besotted with watching and playing sports. This book is an exciting survey of Australia's sporting life since white settlement. It is the first single volume to deal comprehensively with the history of a range of individual sports in Australia including cricket; horse-racing and trotting; netball; rowing and sculling; tennis; lawn bowls; swimming, surfing and surf-lifesaving; and the football codes - Australian rules, rugby league, rugby union and soccer. Leading sports historians look at the impact of professionalism and commercialisation on many sports, the link between sport and nationalism, the successes of Australian sport in the international arena and the effect of the communications revolution on sport. They argue that class prejudice, sexual segregation and racial discrimination have permeated Australia's sporting history, and that sport in Australia has not taken place on a level playing field
