Abstract
For the football enthusiast, "A Game of Our Own" will provide intriguing insights into the way the various rules and styles of play evolved. Despite Blainey’s qualification that some of his conclusions will be provisional, one feels that ‘most of the salient events and changes’ have been ‘pieced together’ and that this history is now a definitive work on the subject.
