Abstract

With erudite scholarship, lively writing, and daring leaps across topics, eras, and disciplines, Allen Guttmann has earned a champion’s laurels in global sports studies. This essay is an appreciation of but one of his many accomplishments, his weaving together the multiple strands of Japanese sporting practices into a historical tapestry of indigenization and sportification. His coauthored book with Lee Thompson, Japanese Sports (2001), is an original contribution to our understanding of modern Japan and an influential argument about sports globalization.
