MEDIA REVIEWS

"Martin provides an excellent view of leisure in one small geographic area over a 50-year period, but he draws on larger works to reinforce that this pattern is reflective of the larger pattern of leisure development in the United States at that time. The book is easy to read and impressive in its scholarship. It will appeal to sport and cultural historians alike."

"The author presents a fine analysis of leisure activities in this regional history of Pittsburgh [but] this work . . . is more than a local history. It deserves a wide audience of scholars and students seeking to understand the importance of leisure activities and the legacies of class, gender, and community."
