A to Z of Sport: The Compendium of Sporting Knowledge by Trevor Montague
THE A TO Z OF SPORT is unique: nothing as comprehensive has ever appeared before. It covers around one hundred sports, with the treatment of some of the nation's favourites, such as football, rugby, cricket and athletics, almost meriting books in themselves. The sports covered include everything you can think of: from football to fencing, cricket to croquet, motor racing to marbles, all the way from adventure racing to wrestling - no sport is too big or small for inclusion. There is an introductory essay for each sport, explaining its history and rules. These are followed by the most comprehensive lists of tournaments, champions, cups, venues and participants ever assembled. And there are further sections on Sportspeople, the Television Sports Personality of the Year, Trophies, Sporting Quotations and Sporting Current Affairs. From remarkable facts to argument-settling information, the A TO Z OF SPORT is the indispensable reference book for every sports fan.
