KIckOffFrontSMSWNaked Eye plans to publish David Pendleton’s new book Kick Off! The start of spectator sports as the first in its Potted Theses series.

Kick Off! charts and analyses the experience of Bradford in relation to the national development of sport in the modern city and how spectator sport, in particular, helped shape personal and civic identities in a bourgeoning industrial community. What book place in Bradford in the latter half of the nineteenth century was nothing less than a sporting industrial revolution, whose effects remain with us to this day.

Potted Thesis generic Front Cover copy2

We publish concise layperson-friendly versions of PhD and other research theses to bring to a wider audience the ideas and wisdom of people whose master oeuvre may otherwise languish in eternal obscurity in an academic library. The requirements of academic rigour can make theses tedious to wade through, weighed down as they are by unwieldy chapters on methodology and statistics. The ‘potted thesis’ concept is to consign the boring bits to the footnotes, refining the text to convey the kernel of the idea and the meat of the discussion – the bits the author will tell you about at parties.

To aid readers encountering a subject for the first time, our potted theses may include a guest editor’s or the series editor’s clarifications and commentary or questions to the author.
