Rate this:
Some moments in sports-- whether they take place on a track, on a tennis court, or in a courtroom-- transcend the event itself. Gitlin looks at particular events that revolutionized a sport, how a contest of speed inspired a nation, or even how a humble victory affected the world. The twenty events featured in this book had profound social, political, and cultural importance and inspired athletes and spectators alike.
