About this book

This book provides a lively study of the role that Australians and New Zealanders played in defining the British sporting concept of amateurism. In doing so, they contributed to understandings of wider British identity across the sporting world.

Reviews

“Nielsen’s assiduous work in the archives reveals that Coombes was instrumental in establishing a network of contacts who were empire loyalists rather than colonial nationalists. … it generates new perspectives that cultural historians will find useful.” (Dilwyn Porter, The Journal of the Historical Association, October, 2016)
