1 Football: The First Hundred Years The Untold Story Publisher: Routledge, 2005 ISBN: Price: Adrian Harvey Football Studies, vol. 8 no The story of the creation of Britain's national game has often been told. According to the accepted wisdom, the refined football games created by English public schools in the 1860s subsequently became the sports of the masses. Football, The First Hundred Years, provides a revisionist history of the game, challenging previously widely-accepted beliefs. Harvey argues that established football history does not correspond with the facts. Football, as played by the 'masses' prior to the adoption of the public school codes is almost always portrayed as wild and barbaric. This view may require considerable modification in the light of Harvey's research. Football's First One Hundred Years provides a very detailed picture of the football played outside the confines of the public schools, revealing a culture that was every bit as sophisticated and influential as that found within their prestigious walls. Football, The First Hundred Years sets forth a completely revisionist thesis, offering a different perspective on almost every aspect of the established history of the formative years of the game. The book will be of great interest to sports historians and football enthusiasts alike. Introduction Waiting for kick-off 1. What football was not. The history of Shrove football 2. Entertaining the elite Football at the public schools and the universities Football outside the public schools: From American Indians to Origin of the Species 4. An epoch in the annals of sport Britain's first football culture, Sheffield Footballing Backwaters? London, the F A and the rest, 1860 to Football splits up but goes national: The creation of a national football culture Kicking and carrying: The geographical distribution of sporting rules Cups, leagues and professionals: Rugby and Association Conclusions: The real history of the creation of modern football 79

2 Terrace Heroes The Life and Times of the 1930s Professional Footballer Graham Kelly ISBN: Price: In the 1930s the football idol emerged, the 'terrace hero' prototypes for today's powerful media sport stars. The players of the 1930s were the first generation of what we now regard as 'professionals', yet until recently the life and careers of footballers of this generation has been little studied. During 1930s Britain, football became increasingly commercialised, and the rise and development of both local and national media, in particular broadcast media, enabled players to become widely recognised outside of their immediate local context for the first time. Tracing the origins, playing careers and 'afterlives' of several First Division players of the era, Graham Kelly's revealing history explores the reality of living in Britain in the 1930's and draws interesting comparisons with lives of our contemporary 'terrace heroes', the football stars of today. 1. Professional footballers as 'terrace heroes' 2. The career path of professional footballers 3. Footballers as employees 4. Directors, managers, trainers and coaches 5. Footballers' lifestyles 6. Footballers and the media 7. Jack Atkinson - Bolton Wanderers 8. Bob Baxter - Middlesbrough 9. Harry Betmead - Grimsby Town 10. Jack Crayston - Arsenal 11. Billy Dale - Manchester City and Ipswich Town 12. Jock Dodds - Sheffield United and Blackpool 13. Harold Hobbis - Charlton Athletic 14. Joe Mercer - Everton 15. Cliff Parker - Portsmouth 16. Bert Sproston - Leeds United, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City 17. Conclusion 80

3 Football Studies, vol. 8 no British Football & Social Exclusion Stephen Wagg ISBN: Price: This book takes stock of British football at the beginning of the twentyfirst century. It is written by a range of concerned academics and writers, all of whom have an active relationship with the contemporary football world. The book assesses the changes that have occurred in many areas of football culture and the political and academic debates that have accompanied these changes. English football in particular, it seems, is 'fat city'. The Premiership, now eight years old, has, via satellite television, become a globalised phenomenon: there are Liverpool supporters in Bangladesh, Chelsea fans in sub-saharan Africa and Manchester United followers across the globe. Grounds are full. Top class football attracts people to bars and pubs in huge numbers. Hooliganism appears a thing of the past. Everyone seems to love football and/or to support a team. The British football media are generally euphoric in their rendering of contemporary football culture. However, the contributors to this book argue that the heavily commodified, PR-driven and cartelised British football world, with which so many contemporary politicians and other public figures rush to identify themselves, has either created, exacerbated or continued to ignore serious problems of social exclusion problems of class and community, race and ethnicity, gender, sexuality and age. 81

4 Soccer and Disaster International Perspectives Edited by: Paul Darby Martin Johnes Gavin Mellor ISBN: Price: The word disaster is much used in the world of soccer - conceding a penalty, a sending off, an untimely defeat. Comparing these with real life disasters puts things into perspective and the results of the games become insignificant. Soccer is not more important than life or death! For the first time, real life tragedies in the world of soccer are explored in one volume. From the loss of life of talented young players in the Munich and Zambian air disasters to fatal overcrowding at Hillsborough and Moscow. During the history of the game, fans and players alike have been the victims of negligence, complacency and misfortune. The causes, consequences and legacies of these and other disasters are examined in this book that reveals frightening parallels and important lessons. Soccer Disasters: Causes, responses, legacies and lessons Darby, Johnes and Mellor Part 1. 'Heads in the Sand': Football, politics and crowd disaster M Johnes Part 2. The Hillsborough Disaster P Straton Part 3. The Heysel Stadium Disaster from the Perspective of Juventus F Chisari Part 4. The Moscow Soccer Disaster Part 5. The 1923 Wembley FA Cup Final J Hill Part 6. The Ellis Park Stadium Disaster P Alegi Part 7. The Ibrox Disaster of 1971 G Walker Part 8. The 1958 Munich Air Disaster G Mellor Part 9. Superga's Disaster: Torino 1949 P Dietschy Part 10. The Alianza Disaster 1987 A Panfichi Part 11. The Zambian Air Disaster 1993 P Darby Part 12.
