Christian Koller

Goal!

A Cultural and Social History of Modern Football

€ 37.89


Covers the history of the beautiful game from its origins in English public schools in the early 19th century to its current role as a crucial element of a globalized entertainment industry. The authors explain how football transformed from a sport at elite boarding schools in England to become a pastime popular with the working classes, enabling factories to give birth to the teams that would become the Premier League mainstays. The book also discusses the use of soccer for political purposes, such as in Hitler`s Germany and Franco`s Spain. And—given the long-standing association of soccer as a man`s sport and the rise of women`s soccer, especially in the U.S.—the authors look at the gendered history of the world`s most popular sport.
