Sinopsis de PATRIOTIC GAMES: SPORTING TRADITIONS IN THE AMERICAN IMAGINATION, 1876-1926 (SPORTS AND HISTORY) de Gustave Flaubert:

In Patriotic Games, historian Stephen Pope explores the ways sport was transformed from a mere amusemen t into a metaphor for American life. Between the 1890s and the 1920s, sport became the most pervasive popular cultural activity in American society. During these years, basketball was invented, football became a mass spectator event, and baseball soared to its status as the national pastime. Pope d emonstrates how America's sporting tradition emerged from a society fractured along class, race, ethnic, and gender lines. Institutionalized sport became a trans- class mechanism for packaging power and society in preferred ways-it popularized an interlocking set of cultural ideas about America's q uest for national greatness. Nowhere was this more evident than the intimate connection established between sport and national holiday celebrations. As Pope reveals, Thanksgiving sports influenced the holiday's evolution from a religious occasion to a secular one. On the Fourth of July, sporting ev ents infused patriotic rituals with sentiments that emphasized class conciliation and ethnic assimilation. In a time of social tensions, economic downturns, and unprecendented immigration, the rituals and enthusiasms of sport, Pope argues, became a central component in the shaping of America's nati onal identity.
