Jean Williams’ review of Manchester City Women: An Oral History by Gary James did not go down well with the author, and in this response he disputes several points in the review, foremost of which is that his book is not to be judged as an academic work since it’s published to appeal to a broad audience. He also protests some of Williams’ assumptions about his relationship with the Club, as well as historical facts and interpretations.
Strong illustrated oral history of a women’s football team that misses some intellectual opportunities
For years, sport historian Gary James has gathered oral testimony from peaople involved in the making of a women’s team within the Manchester City FC. The result is Manchester City Women: An Oral History (James Ward Publ.), a lavishly illustrated volume that we asked renowned football historian Jean Williams to read and review. Impressed by the oral histories and the illustrations, Professor Williams still would have preferred more penetrating critical analyses.
