New Book

Susan Cahn, whose 1994 book Coming on Strong, is an excellent piece of sport history, has a new collection about gender and sport in the United States. Cahn has co-edited (with Jean O'Reilly from UConn) Women and Sport in the United States: A Documentary Reader. Ebuz was able to snag a copy from the publishers recently and I have enjoyed it thus far.

The editors have done an excellent job incorporating primary documents and accounts in women's sports from throughout the 20th century alongside the work of sports historians and scholars.

This article actually gives a better overview than I can right now given that I have only read a few select pieces.
