The genesis for this book was a 1969 compilation in which Peter Lovesey and Tom McNab described all books on track and field to date. Both authors have had a lifetime interest and involvement in athletics and the present work builds on that knowledge and expertise to give the reader a definitive guide to the UK literature of track and field. This "super" bibliography includes an extensive introductory overview of the literature by Tom McNab, as well as annotations contributed by all three compilers. The compendium covers the history, theory and practice, and personalities of athletics as well as special chapters on athletics in literature and the visual arts.
