Out of His Skin: The John Barnes Phenomenon

Dave Hill

Regular price £9.99

Tax included.

From the publisher:

Out Of His Skin is as far from the standard, cosy football biography as you can imagine. Rather than merely accepting or celebrating the traditions of the game, Dave Hill examines the nature of racism in English football in general and on Merseyside in particular, and shows how John Barnes's transfer to Liverpool in 1987 crystallised issues of race few had been willing even to acknowledge. First published in 1989, this new edition includes and extensive new introduction and offers fresh insights into the development of football's often uneasy relationship with black Britain.
