During the African American cultural resurgence of the 1920s and 1930s, professional athletes shared the spotlight with artists and intellectuals. Negro League baseball teams played in New York City’s major-league stadiums and basketball clubs shared the bill with jazz bands at late night casinos. Yet sports rarely appear in the literature on the Harlem Renaissance. Although the black intelligentsia largely dismissed the popularity of sports, the press celebrated athletics as a means to participate in the debates of the day. A few prominent writers, such as Claude McKay and James Weldon Johnson, used sports in distinctive ways to communicate their vision of the Renaissance. Meanwhile, the writers of the Harlem press promoted sports with community consciousness, insightful analysis and a playful love of language, and argued for their importance in the fight for racial equality.

Baseball, more than any other sport, inspires widespread research and publication. The literature of baseball is vast and continues to grow at a fantastic pace. Conversely, bibliographical control in this area has, until recently, seriously lagged. With over 57,000 entries, this massive three-volume set is the largest and most comprehensive non-electronic, non-database, print bibliography on any major American sport. This second edition brings the author's 1986 book up to date with the tremendous body of baseball literature published in the last 20 years. Represented here are books and monographs; scholarly papers; government documents; doctoral dissertations; masters' theses; poetry and fiction; novels; pro team yearbooks; college and professional All-Star Game and World Series programs; commercially produced yearbooks; and periodical and journal articles, including the first-ever complete analysis of the major diamond-oriented contents of ""Baseball Magazine"", ""Baseball Digest"", ""Sport"", ""Sports Illustrated"", and ""ESPN: The Magazine"", among others. Data includes biographical references to 3,904 major league players, and an appendix offers a full list of the 1,712 journals, periodicals and magazines cited. The work is fully indexed by subject and name. The book is published as a set of two volumes. Replacement volumes can be obtained individually under ISBN.

What role does sports medicine play in today's society? Is it solely about treating sports injuries? Should it only be concerned with elite sport? This book provides a history of the relationship between sport, medicine and health from the mid-19th century to today. It combines the sub-disciplines of the history of medicine and the history of sport to give a balanced analysis of the role of medicine in sport and how this has evolved over the past two centuries. In an age where sports medicine plays an increasingly prominent role in both elite and recreational sport, this book provides a timely and clear analysis of its rise and purpose.

Called the Lost Generation, American writers who went to Paris after World War I were rebels against social and political conservatism in the United States. They saw Paris as a cultural center and as a place where they could find an audience for their literary experiments -- experiments that changed the course of American writing in the 20th century. This group is the focus of this DLB volume. They form a coherent age group that contributed a chapter, and an important one, to the history of American letters, writes one of their peers, Malcolm Cowley, in the volume's foreword. It was during their heyday, and partly because of their efforts, that American writing ceased to be regarded as a provincial activity...and was recognized by the world for its inherent qualities.99 entries include: Margaret Anderson, Sherwood Anderson, Djuna Barnes, Natalie Barney, Sylvia Beach, Stephen Vincent, Benet Malcolm Cowley, Henry and Caresse Crosby, e.e.cummings, Hilda Doolittle, John Dos Passos, F. ScottFitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Henry Miller, Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein and Thornton Wilder.
