a fine collection of articles and an excellent contribution to our teaching materials. * Onno van Nijf, L'Antiquite Classique * Scanlon's collection is a welcome addition to existing offerings then, especially as it collects, updates and synthesizes important scholarship by all the heavy-hitters in the field, articles which undergraduates would be hard-pressed to locate in their original, relatively obscure journals or to read in foreign languages ... Scanlon's collection - as the latest entrant into the increasingly crowded field of sport history texts - is a winner. * Sinclair Bell, The Classical Journal Online * These volumes assemble a notable array of scholarly treatments ranging across a great many aspects of ancient sport, and they are valuable for what they reveal about the past. But perhaps their greater value is less explicit: despite the disparities, the very continuation of sport and competition through the long centuries demonstrates the continuities of human nature lurking beneath cultural and historical differences. The desire to strive, to compete, and to triumph has been common to all ages. * Justin D. Lyons, Sport Literature Association *
