We're delighted to announce that we'll be taking part in the Attingham Trust Study Programme, "The Horse and the Country House," in England in September. We have in stock some of the books on the program's suggested reading list. A selection of them, plus others that may be of interest, are included in "Featured Books" at the bottom of this page. Quantities are very limited. For other titles related to the program's theme, search by the keyword Attingham, or go to "Browse Horses" and then look through the topics Art, Driving (especially other World on Wheels volumes), Farming, Horses in Society & History, and Hunting. We're happy to ship postpaid to Attingham participants within the United States.

The Racing Game
Scott, Marvin B.

Scott, Marvin B. The Racing Game. Chicago: Aldine 1968. 186p. Very good hardcover (outer pages lightly foxed); no d.j. ** Analysis of the social world of horse racing, using sociologist Erving Goffman's insights about "performance." Discusses racing in terms of performers, audience, and stage managers--for instance, trainers, bettors, and officials. An unusual look at racing; still one of the very few such studies. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate. (Item ID: 5405)
