Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The author traces the marathon from its largely immigrant and working-class origins in New York City during the 1890s to the ability of the Los Angeles marathon to ease racial and class tensions in the wake of the L.A. riots of the 1990s. Along the way she examines effects on the sport of the Industrial Revolution, waves of immigration, middle-and upper-class urban boosterism, and the Cold War.
