Synopsis

Synopsis

Popular in various forms the world over, bowling became one of America's favorite pastimes as early as the 1800s. Bowling rules were standardized in New York in 1895. But it wasn't until after World War II that bowling really swept the nation, and by the 1950s and '60s, bowling was ubiquitous in towns and cities small and large. Local and national competitions, television specials, and the Professional Bowlers Association helped fuel the fire. Soon, adults and children alike were participating in bowling on a regular basis, often in weekly leagues. Though popularity has waxed and waned over the years, today more than 95 million people count themselves as regular bowlers. Bowling expert Mark Miller traces the history of bowling in the United States in this colorful and concise exploration of bowling as both a sport and a leisure activity. From its ancient beginnings to the mid-century boom to today's bowling and entertainment centers, Miller captures the essence of bowling.
