Editorial Reviews


"Handsomely produced, cleverly organized, well selected. The text will help students appreciate the ancient sources--both literary and visual--on ancient athletics."--W. R. Connor, Princeton University

"Goes beyond a judicious compilation of sources on ancient athletics. It provides...a delicious compendium of the author's own vivid translations, insightful comments, provocative discussion questions, and photos....Excellent."--Thomas F. Scanlon, University of California at Riverside

"Anything Waldo Sweet does is good. The book is the result of long experience teaching...on Ancient Sport. The questions attached to the sources are good and useful, and so are the sources themselves, which are well chosen....The addition of passages illustrating `Recreation' is novel and good."--A. E. Raubitschek, Stanford University

"An excellent reference for the students of sports history who desire a summary of original sources pertaining to Greek sport."--William G. Vandenburgh, California State Univerity, Hayward

"An excellent selection of sources for a topic now enjoying a growing reception in university curricula."--Robert K. Sherk, State University of New York, Buffalo
