Association Football : A Study in Figurational Sociology, Hardback Book

Description

This book presents a synthesis of the work on early football undertaken by the authors over the past two decades.

It explores aspects of a figurational approach to sociology to examine the early development of football rules in the middle part of the nineteenth century.

The book tests Dunning's status rivalry hypothesis to contest Harvey's view of football's development which stresses an influential sub-culture outside the public schools.

Status Rivalry re-states the primacy of these latter institutions in the growth of football and without it the sport's story would remain skewed and unbalanced for future generations.
