1966 & Not All That

Edited by Mark Perryman

1966 10.11 COVER NO FLASH
A unique 50th anniversary collection of superlative writing and new football thinking. A first-ever oral history of ’66 combined with match reports provided by writers from each of the countries England played, create a highly original view of the tournament –  how the fans watched the games, the stadia, the newspaper and TV reporting are each revisited. The politics, music and fashion of ’66 are examined too, exploring the forces of fan resistance in England and Germany that have found common cause in opposition to the corporate take over of the game, as well as the entirely new ranking system that calculates England’s fall, and occasional rise, from 1966 to 2016, showing who has overtaken England and why.

Full list of contributors: Marcela Mora y Araujo, Philippe Auclair, Asif Burhan, Carlos Calderón Cardoso, Frederico Duarte Carvalho, Philip Cornwall, Nick Davidson, Mark Doidge, Stuart Fuller, David Goldblatt, Sven Goldmann, Leonardo Haberkorn, Gerry Hassan, Markus Hesselmann, Joe Kennedy, Simon Kuper, Amy Lawrence, Simon Inglis, Claus Melchior, Mark Perryman, Sanaa Qureshi, Steve Redhead, Rob Steen, Alan Tomlinson, Richard Weight, Claire Westall and John Williams.
