Richer Than God is an authoritative, provocative, investigative account of Manchester City's history, culminating in its transformation as Sheikh Mansour seeks to spend the formerly miserable Manchester club into the European elite. When Conn asked an American working in Abu Dhabi whether its economy had been at all affected by the global recession, he said: 'My friend, we're richer than God'. It is also a tale of innocence: that of a six-year-old boy transfixed by his sky-blue heroes, coming of age as a writer with the mature understanding that both his club and the game are businesses. Why should modern football continue to claim the unquestioning loyalty of fans, when there is so much in the game to question?

Please May I Have My Football Back? is the story of the Alexander family and how they helped run Manchester City football club from its foundation in 1880 until the club was sold to Peter Swales a century later. Written by Eric Alexander, former Chairman and current Honorary President of the club and board member throughout the glorious 60s and 70s, it contains wonderful behind-the-scenes stories detailing what it was like running one of the world's biggest football clubs at that time. Crammed full of stories about players such as Rodney Marsh, Colin Bell, Franny Lee, Mike Doyle, and Mike Summerbee, this book also tells many boardroom stories of the kind of shenanigans that go on in negotiations between clubs, how Eric's grandfather, then Chairman of Manchester City, was asked to drive the victorious Manchester United team on their tour of the city following the 1909 FA Cup final victory, his dealings with football's administrators and referees, which would often leave him incredulous and how City won bundles of silverware throughout that successful era. Eric followed in the footsteps of his grandfather and father as Chairman of the club and he tells the tale in full of how he stood aside to allow the controversial Peter Swales to assume the mantle in 1972 amidst a battle within the club between manager Joe Mercer and coach Malcolm Allison that split the club and cost it the chance of further Championship glory. But there are splendid tales about City's summer tours abroad, the decision-making process behind the appointment of Joe Mercer, which saw Don Revie, Bill Shankly, and Peter Doherty all rejected, and the strange tale of the confusion over the assassination of Bobby Kennedy in 1968. There are also intriguing stories about the likes of Matt Busby, Adi Dassler (founder of Adidas), Nancy Sinatra, Billy McNeill, King George V, Josef Goebbels, Denis Law, Bobby Robson, and Trevor Francis. Please May I Have My Football Back? looks back at a bygone era, bids farewell to Maine Road in tear-jerking manner, and allows fans of all hues to understand how much the game has changed from its humble roots to the multi-million pound industry of today.

There has been an explosion in the quantity of sports history literature published in recent years, making it increasingly difficult to keep abreast of developments. The annual number of publications has increased from around 250 to 1,000 a year over the last decade. This is due in part to the fact that during the late 1980s and 90s, many clubs, leagues and governing bodies of sport have celebrated their centenaries and produced histories to mark this occasion and commemorate their achievements. It is also the result of the growing popularity and realisation of the importance of sport history research within academe. This international bibliography of books, articles, conference proceedings and essays in the English language is a one-stop for the sports historian to know what is new.
