Dundee. As a footballing city it has been the subject of great curiosity for as long as the game has been played professionally. How does a relatively small and economically-challenged city manage to sustain two senior clubs which, perversely, play across the road from one another? And why has this rivalry not suffered the scourge of sectarianism which has blighted football elsewhere in Scotland? ACROSS THE GREAT DIVIDE, first published to great acclaim in 1984, explores the histories of both clubs. We discover that when Dundee United reached the semi-final of the 1983 European Cup it meant that, with the exception of Glasgow, Dundee was the only British city to have provided two semi-finalists in that great competition. Not Manchester, Liverpool, or even London. Since then Dundee United have gone on to reach a UEFA final and win the Scottish Cup. For Dundee FC things have ben slightly different. We have to go far back in time to recall their glory days, and the silence of their more recent suffering has been punctuated only by boardroom upheaval and the threat of closure. It is only recently that the club's fortunes have taken an upturn, with an influx of exciting, tenacious foreigners.
