Tracing the evolution of Polo from its origins in Central Asia to its current manifestation as a professional sport that attracts wealthy sponsors and patrons, this sociological study examines how polo has changed according to the economic and cultural differences of the nations and continents where it is played. Consisting of four principle sections, The Tribesmen, The Aristocrats, The Amateurs, and The Professionals, this study looks holistically at the variety of ways that polo influences and is influenced by the peoples that participate in it. One hundred historic and modern photographs are included.
