"WRESTLING - CATCH-AS-CATCH-CAN - THIS style is selected for illustration because it is the most universal, and practically comprises all the other forms. It is the most natural method, the most effective under all circumstances, and requires no special preparation in the way of clothing. The attempt has not been made here to touch upon all the locks and combinations, since there is practically no limit to them, but rather to show the most common and useful, and by presenting them graphically, to show the diverse possibilities of this form of wrestling. As a physical exercise there is no sport which calls for so much strength, endurance and agility, combined with cool judgment; and with men who love to oppose their strength to that of others, no sport is so popular. Wrestling does offer opportunities for ungentlemanly and unsportsmanlike work, but so do all other competitive athletics. It is to the lover of sport, the true amateur, our little work is offered." - E. Hitchcock Jr. and R. F. Nelligan (The Authors) This 1912 classic is a must have book for your physical culture library. Visit our website and see our many books at PhysicalCultureBooks.com

'Cricket is an Indian game accidentally invented by the English,' it has famously been said. Today, the Indian cricket team is a powerful national symbol, a unifying force in a country riven by conflicts. But India was represented by a cricket team long before it became an independent nation. Drawing on an unparalleled range of original archival sources, Cricket Country is the story of the first 'All India' cricket tour of Great Britain and Ireland. It is also the extraordinary tale of how the idea of India took shape on the cricket field in the high noon of empire. Conceived by an unlikely coalition of colonial and local elites, it took twelve years and three failed attempts before an 'Indian' cricket team made its debut on the playing fields of imperial Britain. This historic tour, which took place against the backdrop of revolutionary politics in the Edwardian era, featured an improbable cast of characters. The teamâs young captain was the newly enthroned ruler of a powerful Sikh state. The other cricketers were chosen on the basis of their religious identity. Remarkably, for the day, two of the players were Dalits. Over the course of the blazing Coronation summer of 1911, these Indians participated in a collective enterprise that epitomizes the way in which sport -- and above all cricket -- helped fashion the imagined communities of both empire and nation.

Sports around the World History Culture and Practice 4 volumes

In the 1908 games in London the wrestling was British style, which was
formalized with printed rules for the first time. However in 1912 the style re- verted
back to Greco-Roman when the Olympic Games were in Stockholm. It was at the
1912 Olympic ... The “catch-as-catch-can” is now called “freestyle” and is slightly
different than the version used in American schools and universities. Greco-

 Part sport, part performance art, professional wrestling’s appeal crosses national, racial and gender boundaries—in large part by playing to national, racial and gender stereotypes that resonate with audiences. Scholars who study competitive sports tend to dismiss wrestling, with its scripted outcomes, as “fake,” yet fail to recognize a key similarity: both present athletic displays for maximized profit through live events, television viewership and merchandise sales. This collection of new essays contributes to the literature on pro wrestling with a broad exploration of identity in the sport. Topics include cultural appropriation in the ring, gender non-comformity, national stereotypes, and wrestling as transmission of cultural values.
