Title:
The Girls of the Period Playing Ball: The Hidden History of Women’s Football 1869-2015
Authors:
Williams, Jean ( 0000-0003-3444-4956 )
Abstract:
Football is unquestionably the world’s most popular and influential sport. There is no corner of the globe in which the game is not played or followed. More countries are affiliated to FIFA, football’s governing body, than to the United Nations. The sport has therefore become an important component of our social, cultural, political and economic life. The Routledge Handbook of Football Studies is a landmark work of reference, going further than any other book in considering the historical and contemporary significance of football around the world.
