"A world history of the Throwing Events" is the latest volume from the renowned and respected historian and journalist, Roberto L. Quercetani. This prolific author with his great dedication to and love for our sport has been progressively focussing on the various categories of event disciplines, describing in even greater detail the stories and stars first captured in his authoritative, all-event- encompassing publication 'ATHLETICS - A history of Modern Track and Field Athletics'. As with all of Quercetani's previous historical surveys of the Olympics' number one sport,he has again deftly managed to place the progression and development of the throwing events within their rightful cultural and historical context. This publication reminds us of the triumphant deeds of legends such as Didriksen, O'Brien, O'Callaghan, Oerter, Sedykh, Zelezny, Zybina to name but a few, which have ensured that the excitement, drama and ever present danger of the throwing events has captured the imagination of athletics fans worldwide throughout the decades.
