In researching the first book to cover the complete history of Liverpool FC using a linear narrative, the author was given access to the club's original minute books
 
John Williams explores the origins and divisive politics of soccer in the city of Liverpool and profiles the key men behind the emergence of the club and its early successes in this unique and exhaustively researched history of Liverpool Football Club. 

The figures of the club featured here include the first great Liverpool manager, Tom Watson, who piloted the club to its first league championships in 1901 and 1906 before taking the club to the FA Cup final in 1914; Elisha Scott, the darling of the Kop in the 1920s; and, of course, Bill Shankly, who won that elusive first FA Cup in 1965. The recent tragedies that have shaped the club's contemporary identity are covered, as are the new Continental influences at Liverpool, and, of course, the glory of Istanbul in 2005.
