Rooney combines extensive research with a lively personal voice and engaging narrative style to untangle the myths and presuppositions surrounding the club, and reveal its complex and far-reaching cultural influence. Comprehensive and up-to-date, the book features a wide survey of recent commentary, and describes the Club's suspension of operations in April 2002, as well as its resumption in June 2003 with a new focus on "great books."
