"Touchdown tells the story of the rise and importance of American football in the USA and beyond. Covering the game from youth to professional leagues, the role of gender, economics and globalization. The editors are world leading sport historians and Gems and Pfister have assembled an all-star cast to deliver a comprehensive analysis of the USA's most followed sport. Touchdown is essential reading for fans and scholars alike." - John Nauright, editor of SportsWorld: Global Markets and Impact of Sport
"Two esteemed sports historians bring an academic perspective to the most popular of American sports. A multi-authored book, Touchdown is comprehensive, covering football in all it guises - youth, high school, college, professional, and also examining all its warts - social problems, concussions, economic problems. Particularly interesting is the last section of the book focusing on American football in other countries. Get this book - you'll learn a lot." - Bill Mallon, MD, past-president and co-founder, International Society of Olympic Historians
