Beneath the big top

Ward, Steve, 1952- author

In this social history of the circus, from its ancient roots to the rise of the 'modern' tented travelling shows, performer and founder of a circus group Steve Ward draws on eye-witness accounts and contemporary interviews to explore the triumphs and disasters of the circus world. He reveals the stories beneath the big top during the golden age of the circus and the lives of circus folk, which were equally colourful outside the ring
