'A Beautiful Game is an innovative and passionately argued book, with a fascinating story to tell. It is the first authoritative and comprehensive study of the development of women's football throughout the world. It is surely set to become the definitive work in the field.' Matthew Taylor, University of Portsmouth '...provides many useful historical references, and asks several questions on the role played by women in football today, and in the future.' Programme Monthly (Jan 2008)
