Sinopsis: Book by None

Críticas: "This Dictionary is a companion to two 1987 volumes, Biographical Dictionary of American Sports: Baseball and Biographical Dictionary of American Sports: Football, in a planned four-volume set. Topics included here are auto racing, communications and media, golf, horse racing, lacrosse, skiing, soccer, speed skating, tennis, and track and field. Howard Cosell, Joe Garagiola, Ring Lardner, and Grantland Rice are examples of the persons listed in the Communications and Media' section. Several topics are included in a Miscellaneous' section: administration, bicycling, bobsledding, equestrian sports, field hockey, polo, rodeo, rowing, softball, and yachting. Administrators include Avery Brundage, James E. Sullivan, and Peter Ueberroth. The 200-to 900-word entries include both personal and career information. Most of the facts are up-to-date through 1987. Each entry is signed and has a bibliography; however, few items more recent than 1984 are listed. The bibliographies include both books and periodical articles by and about the subject. . . . Of the 519 people listed in this volume, only 74 are women. The entries are balanced between living and deceased persons. Approximately half of those living are still active in their sport; the other half are retired. Biographical Dictionary of American Sports: Outdoor Sports, with its variety of appendixes, is fascinating reading and an excellent sports reference source. This volume is highly recommended for public and academic libraries and also for large high school collections."-Reference Books Bulletin ." . . the work is well done, and special praise is due the ten appendixes and solid index. This is a reference work which belongs in any library supporting interests in sport history, physical education, or indeed a sporting audience with strong reading inclinations."-ARBA "The Dictionary is superb, a formidable accomplishment of cooperative scholarship. The entries are scholarly yet readable, with extensive interpretation and analysis of each person's accomplishments, achievements, and significance. Many entries include bibliographic information on pertinent manuscripts, oral history and audio-visual materials, books, monographs and important articles aabout the subject, as well as any writings by the subject."-Sports Collectors Digest "Auto racing, golf, horse racing, lacrosse, skiing, soccer, speed skating, tennis, and track and field are all covered in this work, the third in a set of four biographical dictionaries of American sport. The other three are devoted, respectively, to football, baseball, and basketball and other indoor sports (forthcoming). This volume also contains a Miscellaneous' category and a selection dealing with Communications Media and Promotion' (e.g., sports announcers). The entries (200-900 words) are generally well researched and written by the book's 79 contributors, who are members of the North American Society for Sports History and other sports history organizations. The entries are grouped by sport, alphabetically, and then alphabetically by name within each category. Cross-references are included not only to entries within this volume, but also to entries in the other dictionaries in the series. Citations for further reading are given. There are detailed index and 11 appendixes, the most significant of which is a section of biographies on notable thoroughbred and standardbred racing horses. Recommended for sports and sports history collections in both public and academic libraries."-Choice ?. . . the work is well done, and special praise is due the ten appendixes and solid index.
