Critical Research in Football Collective, Routledge., Publishing monographs, edited collections, textbooks and Routledge Focus 'short books'. The series will launch in 2017 and I am the academic editor. In January 2019, Simon Whitmore, publisher in Sport and Leisure at Routledge commented about the series: “The Critical Research in Football book series is Routledge’s newest and most rapidly growing series in sport. Series editor Peter Millward has overseen and driven forward this project with energy, enthusiasm and care, and after just 18 months since its inception the series contains one published book, one in press, seven under contract, and seven book proposals under peer review. This rapid rate of growth is unprecedented for a book series on the Routledge sport list, and is testament to Peter’s editorial skill, collaborative working methods, extensive networks and deep subject expertise. A notable characteristic of the series is its international composition, in both authorship and subject matter, with the first wave of books in the series featuring lead authors from the UK, Turkey, Poland, Demark, France, Ghana and the US. Under Peter’s guidance, we are confident that the series will become a focal point for research and debate on football for scholars, students and engaged professionals around the world. “, https://www.routledge.com/Critical-Research-in-Football/book-series/CFSFC
