Nation at Play

A History of Sport in India

Columbia University Press 2016

purchase at bookshop.org Covering sporting activities from ancient times right up to the modern day, Ronojoy Sen's Nation at Play: A History of Sport in India (Columbia University Press, 2016) is at once broad in its scope, yet detailed in its analysis of key events. From football, to the Olympics, to cricket the book explores how sporting life changes in relation to wider societal transformations. I found it both highly readable, and packed full of the type of stories that appeal to sports aficionados.
