A book that fills a niche in academic analysis of the Tour de France.

The Tour de France is an event known worldwide by both fans of cycling and the general public as a distinguished and extreme physical challenge. Since the 1990s, however, the Tour has also become notorious as a testing ground for performance enhancement and a proving ground for anti-doping measures. The Tour has long been the focus of books that concentrate on racing, the personalities, the scandals, and gossip. Racing Time, instead, offers a serious study of the event, analyzed within its political, social, cultural, and economic context. Racing Time presents expert analyses of a range of topics and issues which the recent history of the Tour has shown to be of contemporary significance, including several studies that examine issues around doping from a range of perspectives.

The shipping was just superior

The shipping was just superior; not even one of the books was in contact with the shipping box -anywhere-, not even a corner or the bottom, so all the books arrived in perfect condition. The international shipping took around 2 weeks, so pretty great too.

Found a hard to get book…

Finding a hard to get book on Booksplease and with it not being an over inflated price was great. Ordering was really easy with updates on despatch. The book was packaged well and in great condition. I will certainly use them again.
