The Age of Football: Soccer and the 21st Century
25,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the twenty-first century, soccer commands the allegiance, interest, and engagement of more people in more places than any other phenomenon in the world. David Goldblatt-author of the acclaimed, best-selling The Ball Is Round-charts the sport's global cultural ascent, economic transformation, and deep politicization. Based on a decade of research and reporting, The Age of Football sheds light on the greatest issues of our time-including globalization, immigration, nationalism-and the role that soccer plays. From soccer's connections to social discord in the Middle East as a site for protest and a tool for dictatorships to the reasons behind its surprising surge in popularity in China, India, and the United States, Goldblatt reveals that this massively popular sport is vital to understanding our social, political, and economic lives. Tracking the rise of interest in women's teams throughout the world and the controversy imbedded in the domestic football associations emerging across nations in Africa, he explores the use (and misuse) of soccer in the global advancement of equality and human rights. With breathtaking scope and unparalleled knowledge of the game, The Age of Football proves that whether you call it football or soccer, you can't make sense of the modern world without understanding its most popular sport

The epic exploration of society, politics, and economics in the twenty-first century through the prism of football, by David Goldblatt, who has previously won the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award. In the twenty-first century, football is first. First among sports themselves, but it also now commands the allegiance, interest and engagement of more people in more places than any other phenomenon. In the three most populous nations on earth – China, India and the United States, where just twenty years ago football existed on the periphery of society – it has now arrived for good. Nations, peoples and neighbourhoods across the globe imagine and invent themselves through playing and following the game. In The Age of Football, David Goldblatt charts football’s global cultural ascent, its economic transformation and deep politicization, taking in prison football in Uganda and amputee football in Angola, the role of football fans in the Arab Spring, the footballing presidencies of Bolivia’s Evo Morales and Turkey’s Recep Erdogan, China’s declared intention to both host and win the World Cup by 2050, as well as the FIFA corruption scandal. Standing at the intersection of the game where money, power and identity meet, Goldblatt, like no sports writer or historian before him, presents a sweeping story that is remarkable in its scope, breathtaking in its depth of knowledge and is a brilliantly original perspective on the twenty-first century. It is the only account of how football has come to define every facet of our social, economic and cultural lives and at what cost, shaping who we think we are and who we want to be. Praise for David Goldblatt ‘Goldblatt has become arguably the premier anglophone sports historian . . . illuminating, erudite, fair-minded, readable, told at a cracking pace’ Financial Times ‘Stunning . . . will be the measure against which all other such volumes are judged . . . A magnificent work. Elegant, witty, stylish and crisp’ Guardian

Praise for the first edition: ..'. in the greattradition of Orwell and Solzhenitsyn; its true subject is the survival -- andsometimes the defeat -- of the human spirit in its lonely quest for integrity.'-- Time 'The almost childlike directness of Chen's tales... iscaptured in the very lightly revised translations of this new edition... Highlyrecommended.' -- Choice A classic of modern world literature, thiscollection of stories provides a vivid and poignant eyewitness view of everyday lifein China during the Cultural Revolution. For this edition, Howard Goldblatt hasthoroughly revised the text and updated it to Pinyin romanization. In a newintroduction, Perry Link reflects on the book's significance in the post-Tiananmenera. Twenty-five years after its first publication, The Execution of Mayor Yin haslost none of its power to move the reader, and remains unmatched as a document ofthe period.
