But Hockey: A People’s History is not a business story, rather, it is the story of the men and woman who helped make the game what it is today. It also tells the story of all the great moments in hockey: not just the unforgettable 1972 victory against Russia, but victories no less glorious at the time, such as the Leafs’ previously unheard-of third consecutive Stanley Cup in 1949. Well written narrative of the history of hockey; albeit from a distinctively Canadian perspective. Plenty of historical background and photographs.

Michael McKinley's Hockey: a People's History does seem a lot more focused on the history of the sport from the perspective of people, Canadian people in particular. While the early history and development of the game is of particular interest, I found my attention wavering on occasions as so much was often packed into a chapter without a lot of real depth.

Hockey: A People’s History, like the ten-part CBC series it accompanies, tells the story of this breathtakingly fast game from its hotly contested origins, and the surge in its popularity after 1875, when it was first taken inside, through the rise and fall and rise again of women’s hockey, the sagas of long-lost leagues, such as the Pacific Coast.

Lavishly illustrated, beautifully designed, impeccably researched, and wonderfully written, Hockey: A People’s History is the altogether irresistible companion book to the CBC-Television series of the same name, airing in Fall 06. A must-have for every fan!Hockey is not just Canada’s national game, it is part of every Canadian’s psyche, whether we like it or not. Watching it, playing it, coaching it, and talking about it are up there with eating on the list of the top ten things Canadians do most. In the first half of the last century it mirrored our increasing confidence as a nation and in the last years of the 1900s, which saw an aggressive but unsettling expansion of the game south of the border, it reflected our growing wariness of American influence on Canada.Hockey: A People’s History, like the ten-part CBC series it accompanies, tells the story of this breathtakingly fast game from its hotly contested origins, and the surge in its popularity after 1875, when it was first taken inside, through the rise and fall and rise again of women’s hockey, the sagas of long-lost leagues, such as the Pacific Coast Hockey League and, more recently, the World Hockey Association, to the present day and the first-ever lockout of players by the one remaining league. In that time, while play has changed only slightly (every generation of Canadians has complained about the growing violence of the game) hockey itself has been transformed from a rough and ready winter sport to a business worth many billions of dollars, played by millionaires.But Hockey: A People’s History is not a business story, rather, it is the story of the men and woman who helped make the game what it is today.It also tells the story of all the great moments in hockey: not just the unforgettable 1972 victory against Russia, but victories no less glorious at the time, such as the Leafs’ previously unheard-of third consecutive Stanley Cup in 1949. Through its lavishly illustrated pages skate the players, the coaches, the owners, many of them still legendary, too many of them almost forgotten. They are the reason why Canadians have stayed true to the game.
  • Just an overall excellent book. Well researched, well written and great photos. This is an excellent compliment to the CBC documentary series of teh same name.

  • Was a very appreciated gift for a friend who loves hockey

  • É um livro muito completo, mostra que a história do hóquei não se restringe ao esporte somente, tem relação com a história da humanidade.
    Eu considero este livro, a Bíblia do Hóquei no Gelo
    Michael McKinley e todos que participaram nesse livro, estão de parabéns.
    E olha que o país onde eu moro, tem zero de tradição no hóquei no gelo.
    Parabéns!!!

  • Little disappointed that the book didn't come with the dust jacket. But arrived quickly and is a great book.

  • Got it for cousin because he just started hockey and he loved it!!! Great pics throughout!!!!

  • I have no interest in Hockey at all, but the recipient of the book really rates it as definitive.

  • This is an absolute must have book for any devoted hockey fan. Not only does the book cover early history, it covers little known facts that are often overshadowed by popular belief. It is a very comprehensive guide and makes a great companion to the video series or as a one-timer history lesson on hockey.

  • This is a great history of hockey book that was a fantastic bargain for a like-new coffee table book.
