Abstract

One of the core difficulties with successfully executing any discipline-bound history of ideas relates to the building of a narrative or – as is the case with Psychology Gets in the Game – collection of narratives that can be digested with roughly equal satisfaction by both historian and disciplinary specialist. The nine main essays assembled in this volume, exploring a range of themes and events in the rather erratic early history of Sport Psychology are charged with providing exactly such narratives and, substantively, do a rather splendid job.
