This book details the search for improved stroke techniques, the development of improved training methods, the application of science to the search for swimming knowledge, and the role of the human dynamic. Cecil Colwin, one of the world's foremost authorities on competitive swimming, presents a chronology of the art and science of swimming, from Manilius's 1st century lyric praise of swimming to the cutting edge science of vortex flow circulation. Includes an Index.
