Centenary Reflections: 100 Years of Rugby League in Australia

This volume of ASSH Studies marks the fourth book in a quartet of anthologies devoted to football codes in Australia. Editors Tim Hogan (Reading the Game: An Annotated Guide to the Literature and Films of Australian Rules Football), Bill Murray and Roy Hay (The World Game Downunder) and Mary Bushby and Thomas V. Hickie (Rugby History: The Remaking of the Class Game) are now joined by Andrew Moore and Andy Carr with Centenary Reflections: 100 Years of Rugby League in Australia.

This recent upsurge in scholarship not only reflects the strong growth of football studies as a discipline both in and outside the academy, but it denotes the way in which Australia’s sporting landscape is characterised by a unique and diverse set of football communities.

Edited by Andrew Moore and Andy Carr, this title is number 25 in the Australian Society for Sports History's monograph series.
