The story of the creation of Britains 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 FirstMoreThe story of the creation of Britains 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 Harveys research.

Footballs 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.
