This pioneering work was the first serious attempt to explore the social and economic history of Australian Rules football, with almost exclusive focus on Victoria. The first part of the book documents the origins of the game and the transformation from amateur to semi-professional status. This study asks and attempts to answer many social, political and psychological questions about the place of football in Australian society. Several sociological issues and the development of the football industry are examined, covering such topics as the media, sponsorship, marketing, club finances and player payments and conditions. The authors conclude by examining the role of barrackers and women in football. First published in 1981, with both editions containing an index, bibliography and endnotes.
