Reading Australian Rules Football is the most comprehensive survey of this subject ever attempted. The book identifies over 2000 citations including 1500 annotated entries written by experts, this being more than double the number of citations in an earlier work, Reading the Game (2005).


A wide variety of traditional sources have been surveyed including books, journal and newspaper articles, magazines, literary works and dissertations. The introduction of new topics, such as women in football, Indigenous involvement, web sources, music and art, further enhances this book and reflects changes in the contemporary game.


This work will be an invaluable reference guide for researchers, librarians and collectors. It will also stimulate new lines of research and enquiry. The book will also be useful for the dedicated football follower who will gain insight into the game’s rich cultural heritage and find out more about an individual club, player or event.


Reading Australian Rules Football is the definitive reference guide to sources for Australian football. It is an essential work for all serious students of the game.


Copies of the book will be available at the launch for purchasing and signing.
