Description - Premier League by Jim White

A definitive history of football's most popular, prestigious, and commercially successful league, from an author in the premier rank of football writers. For all the accusations of greed levelled at its well-remunerated players, and the gripe that it is dominated by an elite of wealthy clubs, the Premier League has proved a huge success in footballing and commercial terms since its inaugural season of 1992-3. It has transformed the violent terrace culture of the 1970s and 1980s into sophisticated sporting theatre, a twenty-first century Circus Maximus in which an international cast of footballing gladiators strut their skills before vast crowds in gleaming stadia - and a global audience of billions. Jim White has chosen ten epic clashes to represent the rise and rise of English football's top flight. He evokes the sweat and effort of the matches in thrilling detail, and uses them as a prism through which to view every strand of the premiership's development: he profiles players, managers and owners; charts the ebb and flow of club fortunes in footballing and fiscal terms; and brings to life the turning-points and moments of drama, joy and despair that have punctuated the first 21 years of global football's most watched league.
