About the Author

Dilwyn Porter is Senior Research Fellow at the International Centre for Sport History and Culture at De Montfort University, Leicester. He has written extensively on twentieth century British history and on business history, especially financial journalism and mail order retailing. Recent articles and reviews on the history of sport have appeared in Sport in History, Soccer and Society and the International Journal of the History of Sport; with Adrian Smith, he co-edited Sport and National Identity in the Post-War World (Routledge, 2004). His interests in the history of sport centre increasingly on the history of amateurism and ‘shamateurism’ with particular reference to English football.

He helped to pioneer academic studies of modern football with The Football World: a Contemporary Social History (1984) and went on to edit British Football and Social Change (1991) and Giving the Game Away: Football, Politics and Culture across Five Continents (1995). Recent work on the history of sport has appeared in Contemporary British History, Football Studies and Sport in History and he has edited a collection of essays Football and Social Exclusion (Routledge, 2004).
