This book presents a synthesis of the work on early football
undertaken by the authors over the past two decades. It explores
aspects of a figurational approach to sociology to examine the
early development of football rules in the middle part of the
nineteenth century. The book tests Dunning's status rivalry
hypothesis to contest Harvey's view of football's development which
stresses an influential sub-culture outside the public schools.
Status Rivalry re-states the primacy of these latter institutions
in the growth of football and without it the sport's story would
remain skewed and unbalanced for future generations.
