Originally published in 1978, From Ritual to Record was one of the first books to recognize the importance of sports as a lens on the fundamental structure of societies. In this reissue, Guttmann emphasizes the many ways that modern sports, dramatically different from the sports of previous eras, have profoundly shaped contemporary life.

On the occasion of Gudrun Doll-Tepper's birthday, we are looking back at exciting developments that have evolved over the past decades in sport and physical education. Despite all the challenges these global phenomena are facing, we can also observe fascinating changes, especially with regard to participation opportunities for girls and women as well as for persons with a disability in sport, physical education and physical activity. The contributing authors - leaders, experts, colleagues and friends of Gudrun Doll-Tepper - are providing an exceptional insight into this historical progress. Gudrun Doll-Tepper is recognised as one of the leaders in the activities that led to these changes - on the policy level, in sport practice and in the research and teaching remit of academia, especially in adapted physical activity and physical education. Her unique capacity for networking across sectors and disciplines, on local, national and global level, is exemplary for many of us. We understand that change requires a vision, confidence, strategy, stamina - and team work. In her long-standing career as a leader of various organisations, committees and commissions, as Honorary President of the International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education, as Vice President of the German Olympic Sports Confederation and as a university professor, Gudrun Doll-Tepper continues to inspire us.

Sport has always been a legitimate focus for human energy, and in the last fifteen years it has emerged as a legitimate focus for scholarly energy as well. In this interdisciplinary overview of the study of sport, sociology, intellectual history, psychology, anthropology, and literature are brought to bear in seeking new understanding of the role and significance of sport in society. Some of the conclusions will be controversial or even disturbing, and the breadth of the volume clearly demonstrates that sport history is not merely a hobby. As Jack W. Berryman notes in the introduction to the volume: “Each essay, in some distinctive manner, confronts the problem of general preconceptions and misconceptions in the study of sport history. The authors ask fundamental questions: what is sport, what is its significance over time, and how can sport be studied effectively?” Donald G. Kyle opens the questions with an examination of the myth of the decline of ancient Greek sport. Stephen Hardy proposes a new model for the interpretation of both early and modern sport. Steven A. Riess questions the historicity of the myth of social mobility through sport in America. Richard D. Mandell explains the history of theoretically profound and earnest modern criticism of sport. Allen Guttmann demythologizes the relationship between erotic impulses and sport. This serious and timely study of sport aids in the reevaluation of many popular beliefs and traditional scholarly interpretations concerning sport in various ages and cultures. It offers much of value to all those interested in contemplating the nature and history of the phenomenon of sport.
