Beschreibung

A superb portrait of the divided continent of Africa, told through one of the few things that unites it.

Football inspires competition and inflames passions nowhere as strongly as in Africa. Take the player born and raised in Congo who scored the winning goal for Rwanda against the country of his birth and promptly had his house burnt down for his trouble. Or the Kenyan football chant 'Oliech! Odinga! Obama!', which celebrates the country's star striker, its popular prime minister and its most famous adopted son.

Meanwhile, the influence of African football continues to spread rapidly through Europe. Today, no Premiership team is complete without a major African star - Drogba, Essien, Touré, Adebayor, and Kanu. Countless African players are now enriching English football and becoming household names.

Steve Bloomfield's wide-ranging and incisive book investigates Africa's love of football, its increasing global influence, the build-up to the 2010 WORLD Cup and the social and political backdrop to the greatest show on earth.



Autorentext

Steve Bloomfield was based in Nairobi, Kenya from 2006 to 2010. A former Africa correspondent for The Independent, he reported from more than 25 countries across the continent. He is now the foreign editor for Monocle and lives in London.
