In Hockey, Hardy and Holman offer a comprehensive and engaging history of the fastest game from its origins in a series of stick based contests, including early hockey, bandy, and polo through to the development of our contemporary commercial hockey best exhibited by the NHL and KHL.
Their work offers an innovative periodization that gives order to the tensions and contradictions inherent in the disorderly expansion and contraction of the global game. They chose to concentrate on the convergences and divergences of the hockey world beginning with the codification and spread of the Montreal game in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Their second section addresses the expansion of hockey beyond Montreal throughout the rest of Canada, the northern US, and Europe.

This is inevitable, of course, since to expand every regional chapter to separate country chapters would mean that one had a book the size of the Companion and the associated price.
A number of the chapters were of special interest to me, either because of personal interest or current research. For example, I am currently involved into research on e-books in Sweden.
So, naturally, the chapter on the e-book, in Part 1 and The history of the book in the Nordic countries were of particular interest. The electronic book , is an excellent introduction to the subject, from an historical perspective.
The authors, Eileen Gardiner and Ronald G. In their conclusion, the authors note that the e-book has now been around for a couple of decades, and that the electronic realm is firmly rooted.
What direction this firmly rooted phenomenon will take in the future, however, is rather uncertain.
