Why We Love This

"Football Nation: Four Hundred Years of America's Game from the Library of Congress" is an unprecedented look at football from its early days in colonial America to the professional and college game in the 21st century. This visually stunning social and cultural history contains nearly 400 images, many rare or never before published, including memorabilia, cartoons, fine art, and game photographs. The lively text examines how the game acquired its distinct American style, survived attempts to kill it, and became the country’s dominant sport. Throughout the book, illustrated features explore the history of the fight song, tailgating, and cheerleading; how Hollywood has portrayed the game and its players; the long-running role of women in football; and the impact of game-changing personalities from pioneer Walter Camp to Coach Vince Lombardi to contemporary player agents.
