Seattle Sports: Play, Identity, and Pursuit in the Emerald City, edited by Terry Anne Scott, explores the vast and varied history of sports in this city where diversity and social progress are reflected in and reinforced by play.

The work gathered here covers Seattle's professional sports culture as well as many of the city's lesser-known figures and sports milestones. Fresh, nuanced takes on the Seattle Mariners, Supersonics, and Seahawks are joined by essays on gay softball leagues, city court basketball, athletics in local Japanese American communities during the interwar years, ultimate, the fierce women of roller derby, and much more.

Together, these essays create a vivid portrait of Seattle fans, who, in supporting their teams-often in rain, sometimes in the midst of seismic activity-check the country's implicit racial bias by rallying behind outspoken local sporting heroes.
