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)
