Australia's game

by Matthew Nicholson | 21 July 2022
Hardback
Australia's Game-the History of Australian Football covers the history of Australian Rules football in fantastic detail. Unlike every other sport that has captured the nation's interest, Australian football is not a copy, a clone, or a hand-me-down of European culture. Rather, it is a game with special qualities, which arose from a distinctive series of events in the fledgling colony of Victoria, grew rapidly, and is now the most dominant sport in the country: a social, commercial, cultural and-for many-spiritual force. Australia's Game-the History of Australian Football describes, in forensic detail, the characters that led the way, how crises were faced and overcome, the great players and coaches who have influenced the ways the game has been played, the supporters who have stayed true to their club and have passed on their passion through generations, and most recently how the game has added another dimension with a flourishing national competition for women.
