Football

Football is recognised by Ringwood Publishing as one of the key Scottish themes it has identified as its central focus.

Some Ringwood books are primarily about Football, eg Celtic Submari, Yellow Submarine and The Great Escape?

Others like Scotball, A Subtle Sadness and Paradise Road show the inter-relatedness that exists in Scotland between football and the other key Ringwood themes of politics, religion, money, sex and crime.
