Booklist Review

Gr. 6-12. These titles in the History of Sports series are bound to be popular, even with reluctant readers, for reports and recreational reading. Each book explores how and when the sport started as recreation and as competition, the development of rules and equipment, the roles of athletes and spectators, the top medalists through the years, and what's happening now in the U.S. and abroad. Cycling begins with the invention of the vehicle, describes the evolution of an established sport, and sport stars and scandals. It ends with the latest craze for mountain bikes. Volleyball traces the rise of the activity from basketball's second best to its present place as a global competitive sport. The series design is readable, with clear type, black-and-white action photos, and useful sidebars. At the back are details of awards and statistics, chapter notes, and bibliographies of books, articles, and Internet sources. --Hazel Rochman
