Review&newline;&newline;&newline;&newline;&doublequote;This book, which is vividly and engagingly written, makes a major contribution to our knowledge and understanding of a cultural phenomenon.&doublequote; -- The Times Higher Education Supplement
&newline;&newline;&doublequote;...A fascinating account of the changing nature of the pleasure-seeking crowd in the US and Britain during the twentieth century.&doublequote; -- Brad Beaven, University of Portsmouth, Institute of Historical Research (UK)&newline;&newline;&newline;Review&newline;&newline;&newline;&newline;&doublequote;Gary Cross and John Walton have long proved imaginative practitioners of the history of leisure. In The Playful Crowd they weave together their mutual interests to produce a book of genuine originality and arresting significance. Their account of the transformation of popular spectacle and pleasure -- the playful crowd on both sides of the Atlantic over the past century -- is a comparative history characterized by a lively narrative and arresting detail. It is an important account of the changes in modern urban pleasures in both Britain and the U.S.A.; a book which is a benchmark for future scholars in the field and a model of how to devise and shape the complexities of comparative history.&doublequote; -- James Walvin, professor of history, University of York, author of The People's Game: The History of Football Revisited
