About the book:

Beyond the hype and dollars, the pomposity and myth, this book tells the story of sport and its importance to Australia. "One-Eyed" covers all States and all major sports; it gives women's sports long-overdue acknowledgment; it charts the growth of community sports and features lively accounts of individual achievements. In examining the way Australians win and lose, it shows how sport reflects (and can influence) the issues that have shaped and will shape Australians' sense of who they are. Neither jocks nor barrackers, cynics nor frenzied fans, Colin Tatz and Doug Booth have taken a long, hard look at Aussie sport. What these two affectionate critics of sport have discovered should surprise, irritate and inform.
