"[The Legality of Boxing] reads briskly and is a terrific narrative of the sport's evolution... a measured account of facts and history." - Don Steinberg, Boxing Writers Association of America"Anderson's book is always intriguing, and accurate, on sport and its general history... Anderson is very well read on boxing law and the book is entertaining and accessible for students of all levels interested in sport, law, and society whatever their preferred pastime or fandom." - Journal of Law and Society 34:4 (December 2007)

Overall, [The Legality of Boxing] is a welcome scholarly addition to the burgeoning historical literature on sport and violence and the continuing attempts by the state, governing bodies and others to regulate the body as we all attempt to inhabit, falteringly, the new modes and modernities of the present."
