" In England the latter years of the nineteenth century saw a period of rapid and profound change in the role of women in sports. Kathleen McCrone describes this transformation and the social changes it helped to bring about. Based upon a thorough canvas of primary and secondary materials, this study fills a gap in the history of women, of sport, and of education."
