The Game of Our Lives: The Meaning and Making of English Football

by David Goldblatt - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241955260 | ISBN 10: 0241955262

In the last two decades football in Britain has made the transition from a peripheral dying sport to the very centre of our popular culture, from an economic basket-case to a booming entertainment industry. What does it mean when football becomes so central to our private and political lives? Has it enriched us or impoverished us?
 
In this sparkling book David Goldblatt argues that no social phenomenon tracks the momentous economic, social and political changes of the post-Thatcherite era in a more illuminating manner than football, and no cultural practice sheds more light on the aspirations and attitudes of our long boom and subsequent bust.
