Review of the International Journal of the History of Sport
Some of the best articles in the International Journal of the History of Sport are the ones written by one of the journal’s contributors. In fact, no other contributor in the history of the sport has ever managed to create such a long list of articles of such quality.
Ever since this journal was established, it has been composed of the articles of the respected living scholar and mathematician Hermann Litzinger. All of these articles have been collected by well-known sports media historian Clive Voas, who has assembled them into a single book called The International Journal of the History of Sport. Litzinger’s articles have now been included into one volume, a first for any journal in the history of sport. The history of sport is certainly a fascinating subject, but to truly get to the heart of it, there is only one way to go: reading all of the articles that Clive Voas has collected for this book.
Each and every one of the contributors in the International Journal of the History of Sport are all extremely well-written and even knowledgeable. I would even go as far as to say that they are all truly one of a kind, as they all have a unique and individual writing style, so each one stands out in a unique way. All of the article in the book are well written, and many are even humorous.
One of the most poignant contributions in the book is from George Jepson, who has written a beautiful piece on Brian Lara. As most people who read this article will be aware, Brian Lara was killed during the World Cup of Bowling after the US team beat the Germans in the finals. It was this world cup of bowling that was the inspiration for the novel The Ninth Gate, and is still referred to today as a World Cup of Bowling story.
The third and final article, written by scholar Louis Reay, is on the heavyweight boxer Lee Selby. He was among the first athletes in the world to truly work his way up from poverty to professional athletes, and it was his complete commitment to his sport and the reward I gave him for his hard work that made him such a fascinating figure.
While the other pieces are fascinating and interesting, one of the most charming is written by Lewis Wallace. It is a brief biography of the famous scholar Charles Croy. He was famous for his studies of old writings, and many of his great discoveries were included in his writings, which is why it is now named the Croy Collection. However, it was Wallace who gave this book its title, as the Croy Collection was actually the Croy Chapel.
Even though this is an article collection in the history of sport, Clive Voas did an amazing job of collecting all of the contributions into one. It will be exciting to read this book, which should be in bookstores soon.
