About this book

Is it possible for football matches or players to help forge a collective European identity? Pyta and Haverman seek to answer this question through a detailed analysis of how football is remembered across the continent. European Football and Collective Memory is the first book to deal with collective memory of football on a continental scale.

Reviews

“A volume … ties together several different strands from the founding mythology of footballing and political Europe. Much of what is discussed in this volume has continued relevance for academics using football to try to make sense of the contemporary political context of ‘Europe’.” (Matthew L. McDowell, idrottsforum.org, May 17, 2019)
