Football has a long and fascinating history in Australia stretching back to the mid-19th century. It is a rich history, closely related to one of the main themes in this country's development: immigration and the problems of integration of successive generations into a rapidly evolving national identity.
This history tells the story of the game in a lively and provocative account. Roy Hay and Bill Murray are respected academics, historians and lovers of the game they have followed throughout their lives.
