Product Synopsis

The Netherlands has been one of the world's most distinctive and sophisticated football cultures. From the birth of Total Football in the sixties, through two decades of World Cup near misses to the exiles who remade clubs like AC Milan, Barcelona, Arsenal and Chelsea in their own image, the Dutch have often been dazzlingly original and influential. The elements of their style (exquisite skills, adventurous attacking tactics, a unique blend of individual creativity and teamwork, weird patterns of self-destruction) reflect and embody the country's culture and history. This book lays bare the elegant, fractured soul of the Dutch Masters and the culture that spawned them by exploring and analysing its key ideas, institutions, personalities and history in the context of wider Dutch society.

Author Choice

The word ‘classic’ tends to get pinned too easily on too many titles. But I regard it as a justifiable description in regard to Football Against the Enemy and Brilliant Orange. I can’t put it any more highly than this. I wish I’d written both of them. I put the books together not only because each is intelligently and finely written, but also because the authors are first rate and conscientious reporters. They demonstrate how football spills into and impacts on politics and also social, cultural and national identity. The best books about sport aren’t only about sport. Here’s the proof.
