Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Hugh Dauncey, French Cycling: A Social and Cultural History. Liverpool: Liverpool University Press, 2012. vi + 290 pp. Notes, bibliography, and index. $99.95 U.S. (cl). ISBN 978-1-84631-835-1. Reviewed by Christopher S. Thompson, Ball State University. In this first scholarly book-length study of one of France''s most important sports, Hugh Dauncey promises the reader an "interdisciplinary analysis of how cycling has been significant in French society and culture since the late nineteenth century" (p. 1). As he rightly points out, cycling is far more than just a sport, it is a "ludo-sporting-utility practice" (p. 4), which makes it "arguably a more complex activity than other sporting or recreational practices that are, in essence, just games or sports" (p. 4). This is a crucial point: unlike, say, soccer balls, bicycles have had and still have their utilitarian applications, both military (through World War I, particularly) and civilian (transportation and commuting). Moreover, in addition to its athletic dimension (road, track, and, more recently, mountain bike [VTT] competitions), cycling has always included a significant leisure component, such as riding in city parks or out in the countryside. Finally, perhaps more than any other physical activity, cycling has been intimately linked with the development and economic prospects of important commercial and industrial interests: going back to its beginnings in the late nineteenth century, the fortunes of cycle manufacturers, of course, but also of manufacturers of tires, clothing, components, and accessories have been inextricably tied to the popularity of cycling itself. As Dauncey demonstrates, that popularity has, especially since World War II, ebbed and flowed, declining in the immediate postwar period in large measure as a result of the development of inexpensive motorized vehicles (notably the Vlo Solex), before experiencing a resurgence in recent decades following the invention of new forms of cycling and the implementation in large French cities of public bicycle provision schemes (such as the ubiquitous Vlib''s in Paris), motivated by ecological concerns and the desire to improve the quality of life in large, congested urban environments. Confronted by the dauntingly multifaceted nature of French cycling, Dauncey adopts a case-study method, "the analysis of a carefully chosen selection of topics representative of the principal social, cultural, economic, sporting, and political dimensions of the activity" (p. 6). These case studies, in turn, are focused on five essential themes: "leisure, recreation and sociability; utility; industry, commerce, and technology; sport, competition, and media; and ''identity''" (p. 7). As the above ambitious agenda suggests, the book''s greatest strength is the scope and comprehensiveness of its coverage. Dauncey''s choices are generally well-conceived, although there is, perhaps inevitably, the occasional somewhat perplexing inclusion or omission. French Cycling is organized chronologically into eight chapters, in addition to an introduction and a conclusion, with the periodization largely determined by technological and other trends in French cycling, although occasionally, notably in the case of the interwar period, the chronology coincides with broader historical developments and a more conventional periodization.A key focus of Dauncey''s study, especially early on, is on what he refers to as French cycling''s "sports-media-industrial complex" (p. 45). For those familiar with the history of French cycling, this will come as no surprise, but Dauncey is justified in emphasizing this crucial nexus in the development of cycling in France. From the sport''s earliest period, media entities (notably the sporting press, and later radio and television), cycle and related manufacturers, and the sport''s governing organizations collaborated to promote cycling, implement.

Riassunto: French Cycling: a Social and Cultural History aims to provide a balanced and detailed analytical survey of the complex leisure activity, sport, and industry that is cycling in France. Identifying key events, practices, stakeholders and institutions in the history of French cycling, the volume presents an interdisciplinary analysis of how cycling has been significant in French society and culture since the late Nineteenth century. Cycling as Leisure is considered through reference to the adoption of the bicycle as an instrument of tourism and emancipation by women in the 1880s, for example, or by study of the development in the 1990s of long-distance tourist cycle routes. Cycling as Sport and its attendant dimensions of amateurism/professionalism, national identity, the body and doping, and other issues is investigated through study of the history of the Tour de France, the track-racing organised at the Vélodrome d'hiver in Paris in the 1920s and 1930s and other emblematic events. Cycling as Industry

Sinossi:

This volume aims to provide a balanced and detailed survey of the complex sports and hobby industry that is cycling in France. By identifying key events, practices, stakeholders, and institutions in the history of French cycling, the author presents an interdisciplinary look at how cycling has been significant in French society and culture since the late nineteenth century. French Cycling presents its arguments in clear language and uses a wide range of sources, making it an essential contribution to the study of French popular culture since 1900.
