Ein grandioses Buch, dass anhand der Fußballrivalität gleichzeitig eine Geschichte Spaniens des 20. Jahrhunderts erzählt. erweitert Hat mein Verständnis der Bedeutung des Classico enorm erhöht. Das Englisch des tollen Guardian Journalisten Sid Lowe ist zudem gut verständlich.

Great read if you are a fan of spanishfootball, Barca or RM. So many misconceptions on RM are gone now. As a ManchesterUnited fan this book would have been a little more enjoyable if Barca had lost one of the UCL finals ;)

5.0 von 5 Sternen A history (and soccer) lovers dream 18. April 2014
Von Usni - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book comprehensively details the history of the rivalry, from 1902 to present day. Of course you cannot understand the rivalry without understanding the Spanish Civil War and this is where Sid Lowe shines with a ton of detail on those dark days. Personally I thought the best part was the chapter on the Alfredo Di Stefano transfer which I found very similar to the story of how the Red Sox sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees changing both clubs forever. Barca obviously didn't sell Di Stefano but they, like the Red Sox, whiffed on a chance to acquire/keep one of the greatest players of their respective sports.

The only flaw of the book I felt was that it felt a little thin when it came to the rivalry present day. It has a detailed overview of Mourinho vs Guardiola but I felt Lowe didn't devote enough pages to Messi vs Ronaldo, ironic considering they are the ones on the cover. Lowe wrote almost nothing on Ronaldo's transfer from Manchester United and little on how Messi ended up at La Masia.

But really that's a small nitpick on a otherwise great book. If you want to buy just one book on El Clasico this is the one to buy.

Update (10/30/2014): I am changing my rating to 5 from the original 4 stars. When I wrote the review I had read about 50% of it, basically a through scan but now that I've read it more throughly I felt I shortchanged Sid Lowe. What he's written here is a deep rich history of the Real Madrid and Barcelona rivalry that is as much a history book as it is a soccer book. As someone who loves history and soccer this is nirvana. This is no doubt the greatest english language book on the Madrid-Barcelona rivalry and I wonder even if there is a Spanish language book that is better. I stand by my original criticism because I think we all like to read about contemporary stuff because that's the part we've personally experienced but when I read about the Spanish Civil War and how Barcelona and Real Madrid fared and the influence of Francoism on the rivalry (and Spanish society overall) I can't but help admire the totality of Sid Lowe's work. He must've done a enormous amount of research.

I'm gushing a bit but I cannot praise this book enough. 5 stars for a book that should be winning literary awards.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Must-Read For Barca Fans And Madridistas Alike 3. Januar 2014
Von Craig McLay - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Sid Lowe's smoothly written and highly entertaining history of these two great football clubs dispels many myths and cuts right to the core of a rivalry that is easily one of the biggest in the history of the game.

Whether you count yourself as a Barca fan or a Madridista, a devotee of Messi or Ronaldo, this book will give you a better picture of the historical forces that have shaped two clubs from their formation through the Spanish civil war, their competing philosophies, and some of the titanic personalities who have come and gone.

Unless you speak Catalan or Spanish, Sid Lowe's coverage of La Liga for The Guardian is about the best (and certainly the least hysterically biased) football reporting there is, and he certainly doesn't disappoint with this full-length report on the past and current state of the union of the top two clubs in that preeminent footballing nation.

No matter what your club preference is (mine happens to be Barca), you owe it to yourself to read this book. There's plenty of great material in here - and that's probably about the only thing both sides would agree on.

Von Ellenzp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
The beginning of the book is very interesting as it gets into the time prior to the Spanish Civil War and the time during the War. The book really explores the impact of politics on the clubs and the impact of the War on the two cities, Madrid and Barcelona (its not what you think). The book got less interesting for me when the book turned to a long and detailed discussion of famous players from both clubs. For a super fan I guess this might be interesting but not for me. I am half way through the book and i am hoping it returns to an exploration of the rivalry.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating Read, Great Author 20. Juni 2014
Von GS4815 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Over the past year, football journalism/literature has become one of my favorite genres for casual reading. Sid Lowe, an acclaimed journalist who writes for ESPN and the Guardian (among others), weaves social and sporting history with anecdotes about two of world football's greatest clubs.

Those who are intimately familiar with Spanish/Catalan history as they apply to both Real Madrid and Barcelona may find some of the material redundant. Thankfully, I was not in that camp and thoroughly enjoyed Mr. Lowe's insights into Spanish culture, society, and language through the lens of its most celebrated football clubs. I would highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn more about the history of these two clubs or Spanish history as expressed through football.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best books on Spanish football 14. September 2014
Von Kartik V - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
One of the best books on Spanish football. It is not only a chronicle of the history of the two giants, it also is a social history of Spain from the 1930s. It covers a lot of ground without sacrificing depth. It explodes a lot of myths surrounding the two clubs that still hold sway. Highly recommended.
