SURF AND RESCUE

George Freeth and the Birth of California Beach Culture

PATRICK MOSER A new vision of the beach and the man who made it a reality “Patrick Moser is an excellent historian, surf or otherwise, and with Surf and Rescue we get Moser at his very best: clear-eyed and knowledgeable, a detail man who can nimbly pull back to present the big picture. George Freeth is an undeservedly forgotten figure in American cultural history, and Patrick Moser is the right person to bring him forward.” —MATT WARSHAW, author of The History of Surfing The mixed-race Hawaiian athlete George Freeth brought surfing to Venice, California, in 1907. Over the next twelve years, Freeth taught Southern Californians to surf and swim while creating a modern lifeguard service that transformed the beach into a destination for fun, leisure, and excitement.

JUNE 2022 248 PAGES. 6 X 9 INCHES 39 BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHS

Patrick Moser places Freeth’s inspiring life story against the rise of the Southern California beach culture he helped shape and define. Freeth made headlines with his rescue of seven fishermen, an act of heroism that highlighted his innovative lifeguarding techniques. But he also founded California’s first surf club and coached both male and female athletes, including Olympic swimming champion and “father of modern surfing” Duke Kahanamoku. Often in financial straits, Freeth persevered as a teacher and lifeguarding pioneer—building a legacy that endured long after his death during the 1919 influenza pandemic.

SPORTS / WOMEN AND GENDER STUDIES

DEGREES OF DIFFICULTY

How Women’s Gymnastics Rose to Prominence and Fell from Grace

GEORGIA CERVIN How the Cold War era changed the trajectory of women’s gymnastics “Georgia Cervin's Degrees of Difficulty is an enthralling analysis of elite women's gymnastics, from a scholar's and insider's view. Through carefully applied lenses of gender, race, power, and politics, Cervin exposes the historical underbelly of cheating, bribery, abuse, and political ­manipulation in one of the world's most popular Olympic Sports.” —KEVIN B. WAMSLEY, coauthor of Sport in Canada: A History, fourth edition JUNE 2021

Electrifying athletes like Olga Korbut and Nadia Comăneci helped make women’s artistic gymnastics one of the most popular events in the Olympic Games. But the transition of gymnastics from a women’s sport to a girl’s sport in the 1970s also laid the foundation for a system of emotional, physical, and sexual abuse of gymnasts around the world. Georgia Cervin offers a unique history of women’s gymnastics, examining how the high-stakes diplomatic rivalry of the Cold War created a breeding ground for exploitation. Yet, a surprising spirit of international collaboration arose to decide the social values and image of femininity demonstrated by the sport. Cervin also charts the changes in style, equipment, training, and participants that transformed the sport, as explosive athleticism replaced balletic grace and gymnastics dominance shifted from East to West.

FIGHTING VISIBILITY

Sports Media and Female Athletes in the UFC

JENNIFER MCCLEAREN Ultimate Fighting Championship and the present and future of women’s sports “A scathing critique of the exploitation that defines the relationship of the UFC to its women fighters, Fighting Visibility fills a hole in the study of sports. Never has this subject been explored with the depth and clarity that we have here. A necessary and groundbreaking read. It makes the point with crystal clarity: visibility and equity are not the same thing.” —DAVE ZIRIN, sports editor, The Nation Mixed-martial arts stars like Amanda Nunes, Zhang Weili, and Ronda Rousey have made female athletes top draws in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Jennifer McClearen charts how the promotion incorporates women into its far-flung media ventures, and then she investigates the complexities surrounding female inclusion. On the one hand, the undeniable popularity of cards headlined by women add much-needed diversity to the sporting landscape. On the other, the UFC leverages an illusion of promoting difference—whether gender, racial, ethnic, or sexual—to grow its empire with an inexpensive and expendable pool of female fighters. McClearen illuminates how the UFC’s half-hearted efforts at representation generate profit and cultural cachet while covering up the fact it exploits women of color, lesbians, gender non-conforming women, and others.

FROM FOOTBALL TO SOCCER

The Early History of the Beautiful Game in the United States

BRIAN D. BUNK Rediscovering soccer’s long history in the U.S. “This excellent and timely history on the origins of football in North America fills an important gap. As soccer grows in popularity today, Brian Bunk shows that it has been part of the sporting scene for many centuries. This book is especially welcome for its thorough discussion of Native American football's long history, and the alltoo-often understated role of women in the early development of the game on the continent. This book is essential reading for historians of sport, and an absorbing read for the casual soccer/football fan." —STEFAN SZYMANSKI, coauthor of Soccernomics: Why England Loses, Why Germany, Spain, and France Win, and Why One Day Japan, Iraq, and the United States Will Become Kings of the World's Most Popular Sport

Across North America, native peoples and colonists alike played a variety of kicking games long before soccer’s emergence in the late 1800s. Brian D. Bunk examines the development and social impact of these sports through the rise of professional soccer after World War I. As he shows, the various games called football gave women an outlet as athletes and encouraged men to form social bonds based on educational experience, occupation, ethnic identity, or military service. Football also followed young people to college as higher education expanded in the nineteenth century. University play, along with the arrival of immigrants from the British Isles, helped spark the creation of organized soccer in the United States—and the beautiful game’s transformation into a truly international sport.

TENNIS

A History from American Amateurs to Global Professionals

GREG RUTH Analyzing how tennis turned pro “This book is for tennis pros, serious amateurs, hackers, lovers of the game, and anyone interested in sport history. Greg Ruth shows us how tennis evolved from England’s royal court to L.A.’s public courts to the U.S. Open’s billionaire courts. Featuring big personalities and terrific storytelling, Tennis shows us how and why the game evolved over the years. This is excellent sport history.” —ELLIOTT J. GORN, coauthor of A Brief History of American Sports, Second Edition The arrival of the Open era in 1968 was a watershed in the history of tennis—the year that marked its advent as a professionalized sport. Merging wide-angle history with individual stories of players and off-the-court figures, Greg Ruth charts tennis’s evolution into the game we watch today. His vivid account moves from the cloistered world of nineteenth-century lawn tennis through the longtime amateur-professional divide and the battles over commercialization that raged from the 1920s until 1968. From there, Ruth details the post-1968 expansion of the game as it was transformed by bankable superstars, a popular women’s tour, rival governing bodies, and sponsorship money. What emerges is a fascinating history of the economics and politics that made tennis a decisive, if unlikely, force in the creation of modern-day sports entertainment.

PASSING THE BATON

Black Women Track Stars and American Identity

CAT M. ARIAIL How African American women athletes tested a nation’s image of itself "Ariail pinpoints how important the women of track and field were to changing opinions in both white and black communities about the accomplishments of women of color. But she also powerfully argues that this story does not end with victory. Rather, she reminds us how much work gender did (and does) to undergird racism." —KATHERINE C. MOONEY, author of Race Horse Men: How Slavery and Freedom Were Made at the Racetrack After World War II, the United States used international sport to promote democratic values and its image of an ideal citizen. But African American women excelling in track and field upset such notions. Cat M. Ariail examines how athletes such as Alice Coachman, Mae Faggs, and Wilma Rudolph forced American sport cultures—both white and Black—to reckon with the athleticism of African American women. Marginalized still further in a low-profile sport, young Black women nonetheless bypassed barriers to represent their country. Their athletic success soon threatened postwar America’s dominant ideas about race, gender, sexuality, and national identity. As Ariail shows, the wider culture defused these radical challenges by locking the athletes within roles that stressed conservative forms of femininity, blackness, and citizenship.

THE SPORT MARRIAGE

Women Who Make It Work

STEVEN M. ORTIZ Survival and sacrifice with the ultimate team players “In this keenly observed, empathic, and insightful work, Steven Ortiz recounts the inner experience of wives married to both a man and his sports career. Ortiz observes the precise order in which wives sit on the bench in the stadium, how they respond to affair-seeking groupies, to more senior sports wives, news of a sudden cross-country trade, an intrusive mother-in-law, a lasting head-injury. He explores the complex art of managing a backstage role. This is the best book I know of on the sport marriage.” —ARLIE RUSSELL HOCHSCHILD, author of Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right

AUGUST

In The Sport Marriage, Steven M. Ortiz draws on studies he conducted over nearly three decades that focus on the marital realities confronted by women married to male professional athletes. These women, who are usually portrayed in unflattering and/or unrealistic terms, face enormous challenges in their attempts to establish and maintain functional marital and family lives while the husband routinely puts his career first.

288 PAGES 6 X 9 INCHES 4 CHARTS

Ortiz defines the traditional sport marriage as a career-dominated marriage, illustrating how it encourages women to contribute to their own subordination through adherence to an unwritten rulebook and a repertoire of self-management strategies. He explains how they make invaluable contributions to their husbands’ careers while adjusting to public life and trying to maintain family privacy, managing power and control issues, and coping with pervasive groupies, overinvolved mothers, a culture of infidelity, and husbands who prioritize team loyalty. He gives these historically silent women a voice, offering readers perceptive and sensitive insight into what it means to be a woman in the male-dominated world of professional sports.

The Wars for the Soul of College Basketball

KURT EDWARD KEMPER Idealism, power, and the campaign to monetize college hoops “A well-researched and provocative inquiry into the contentious early development of college basketball. Kemper lucidly exposes the numerous conflicts over fundamental principles and specific policies that repeatedly erupted before the NCAA seized complete control of the sport in 1957.” —CHARLES MARTIN, author of Benching Jim Crow: The Rise and Fall of the Color Line in Southern College Sports, 1890–1980 Big money NCAA basketball had its origins in a many-sided conflict of visions and agendas. On one side stood large schools focused on a commercialized game that privileged wins and profits. Opposing them was a tenuous alliance of liberal arts colleges, historically black colleges, and regional state universities, and the competing interests of the NAIA, each with distinct interests of their own.

Kurt Edward Kemper tells the dramatic story of the clashes that shook college basketball at mid-century—and how the repercussions continue to influence college sports to the present day. Taking readers inside the competing factions, he details why historically black colleges and regional schools came to embrace commercialization. As he shows, the NCAA’s strategy of co-opting its opponents gave each group just enough to play along—while the victory of the big-time athletics model handed the organization the power to seize control of college sports.

THE GOLD IN THE RINGS

The People and Events That Transformed the Olympic Games

STEPHEN R. WENN and ROBERT K. BARNEY The fascinating financial history of selling the Olympics “Wenn and Barney have produced another foundational text in Olympic history, this one exploring the deepening ties between the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the generation of commercial revenue. Utilizing exclusive access to previously undisclosed IOC documents, along with interviews with many high-­ranking Olympic officials, the authors not only shed new light on IOC presidents such as Brundage, Killanin, Samaranch, and Rogge, but also a diverse and colorful supporting cast whose importance is only now revealed.” —KEVIN WITHERSPOON, author of Before the Eyes of the World: Mexico and the 1968 Olympic Games

360 PAGES. 6.125 X 9.25 INCHES 23 BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHS

Once a showcase for amateur athletics, the Olympic Games have become a global entertainment colossus powered by corporate sponsorship and professional participation. Stephen R. Wenn and Robert K. Barney offer the inside story of this transformation by examining the far-sighted leadership and decision-making acumen of four International Olympic Committee (IOC) presidents: Avery Brundage, Lord Killanin, Juan Antonio Samaranch, and Jacques Rogge. Blending biography with historical storytelling, the authors explore the evolution of Olympic commercialism from Brundage’s uneasy acceptance of television rights fees through the revenue generation strategies that followed the Salt Lake City bid scandal to the present day. Throughout, Wenn and Barney draw on their decades of studying Olympic history to dissect the personalities, conflicts, and controversies behind the Games’ embrace of the business of spectacle.

Balancing civic identity and cohesion against unsustainable expenses and diverted funds is a circle most American cities have failed to square. While there are no ‘solutions’ to these challenges, Ehrlich analyzes the responses of Oakland and Kansas City in a balanced and informed way, offering lessons for other cities—and there are many of them—in similar positions.” —JERALD PODAIR, author of City of Dreams: Dodger Stadium and the Birth of Modern Los Angeles A driving ambition linked Oakland and Kansas City in the 1960s. Each city sought the national attention and civic glory that came with being home to professional sports teams. Their successful campaigns to lure pro franchises ignited mutual rivalries in football and baseball that thrilled hometown fans. But even Super Bowl victories and World Series triumphs proved to be no defense against urban problems in the tumultuous 1960s and 1970s.
