Summary

On April 15, 1989, 96 people were fatally injured on a football terrace at an FA Cup semi-final in Sheffield. The Hillsborough disaster was broadcasted live on the BBC; it left millions of people traumatized, and English soccer in ruins.
And the Sun Shines Now is not a book about Hillsborough. It is a book about what arrived in the wake of unquestionably the most controversial tragedy in the post-war era of Britain's history.

In powerful polemical prose, against a backbone of rigorous research and interviews, Adrian Tempany deconstructs the past quarter century of English soccer and examines its place in the world. How did Hillsborough and the death of 96 Liverpool fans come to change the U.K. national game beyond recognition? And is there any hope that clubs can reconnect with a new generation of fans when you consider the startling statistic that the average age of season ticket holder in the U.K. is 41, compared to Germany's 21.
