Présentation de l'éditeur

Founded in 1898, FC Barcelona or Barça, is the world's biggest and
best-loved football club. Barça has more than 500 local fan clubs spread
across the world, while its championship matches attract a global TV
audience. Former players include such legendary figures as Kubala,
Maradona, Cruyff, Ronaldo, Rivaldo and Lineker, and Barça has been
managed by greats such as Helenio Herrera, Cesar Menotti and Bobby
Robson. The club's honorary members include Pope John Paul II and opera
star José Carreras. To unravel the background to the Barça phenomenon,
Jimmy Burns has unearthed police files and long-forgotten newspaper
reports. He has travelled with supporters and has talked to people
intimately linked to the club, from managers and players to groundsmen
and doctors, whilst also gaining access to those who have conspired to
gain political and financial control.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful 18 mai 2001
Par Justin Berkner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Jimmy Burns is a very good writer. In this book he conveys the relationship between the Barcelona football club and the people of the Catalan region of Spain. It's a history of the Catalan people written through their love of their football team. He takes you through the Spanish Civil War (when the only place the Catalan's could display their regional pride was at the stadium) all the way to present day (the rivalry with the Castillon side Real Madrid is as touchy as ever). A great read for any football fan, sports fan or someone interested in history.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 If you love Barca... 10 septembre 2005
Par J. S. Lloyd - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book provides a great overview of the history of the club, its stars, the machinations of its ruling junta, and the passion of the cules, all against the backdrop of Catalonia's political struggle for identity and independence within Spain. Burns provides some nice historical details and great anecdotes, but, as is to be expected considering the hundred year focus of the book and the complexity of 20th century Spain, necessarily deals with some of the political history in a less comprehensive manner.

Although it at times extremely well-written, the book could have done with tighter editing (hence, 4 stars). Burns repeats his descriptions of individuals and events in subsequent pages and at time his prose is florid and unfocused. Pretty minor complaints, however. Although not uncritical, Burns clearly appreciates what Barca have achieved. He also questions how the club will adjust, or might be changed, in the new century. Overall, the book is an excellent read, and continually succeeds in portraying the people involved as just that, people with passions and short-comings. At the end, you understand why the club embodies true football, why it inspires such passion, and why it's such an important part of Catalonia. Forca Barca!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fantastic Read 14 novembre 2006
Par Paul Marc Oliu - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Let me first say that I am very bias. I've been an FCB "soci" since 1981, played in their youth system for a couple of years, and by and large am one of the many fans that buys into the whole "Mes que un Club" mantra.

So understanding that, let me just say that Jimmy Burns has done a fantastic job helping the reader understand how history has shaped the meaning of "Mes que un Club". Part history, part sociology, Burns discusses the club's history, both real and invented, that pushed FCB into being the opposition to Real Madrid.

Keep in mind this is more than a book on the Club. Burns adeptly weaves the Club and the sport with Catalan politics and identity. Always balancing the passions of "Cules" with the machination of the member's of the board, one truly gets a sense of the depth of history and passion behind the Club.

The reader learns some of the details behind some of FCB lore, from the Di Stefano controversy, the Kings Cup match against Real Madrid after the Civil War, to the famous field invasion that erupted into a pro-Catalunya demonstration toward the end of the Franco regime. Some of the myths are debunked, but in all, the Clubs history is given a fair shake.

Keep in mind - On the downside, Jimmy Burns does favor the Catalan club, more times than not. He doesn't approach the topic dispassionately.

As a follow up to A Peaople's Passion, another great read on Spanish football can be found in Phil Ball's excellent book, Morbo. It touches upon the unique history of Spanish football from it's roots in the mines of Huelva, through the use of the sport in identity politics, particularly in the Basque Country and Catalunya.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Good History of FC Barcelona 8 février 2007
Par N. Warner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I highly recommend this book for Barca fans and for general football fans alike. Not only does Burns write about the great players and personalities of the club, he also places them into a historical context.

This was one of the great surprises of the book. He spends considerable time placing Barca's history into the context of the Spanish Civil War and resulting Franco era. Students of Spanish History would do well to read this book.

Overall, I enjoyed it greatly, and hope to read more of Burns' football books.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Barca, Barca, Barca 3 janvier 2007
Par Robinson J. Howard - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I thought this was a well written, well researched book about a topic that means quite a bit to me; mainly football and Barcelona. I love the sport and I love the city. If anyone has an interest in football and history, I would recommend "Barca" to them. (Also, a funny picture of Jose Mourinho when he was assistant manager there in the 90's, during the short time Ronaldo was there). Catalunya is like no place on earth in the way its football is played and coached, followed and loved by the people of the region who live their lives in support of their football club.
