Críticas:

A gripping account of how football captured a nation (Telegraph)

A breezy, readable and nuanced primer to the centrality of football to Brazilian life (Jonathan Wilson New Statesman)

Compelling, lucidly written, and furnished with detail to spare (PA)

Futebol Nation isn't really about sport - it's a pimples-and-all portrait of the world's sixth
largest country and the many ways it has succeeded in shooting itself in both feet

(Irish Independent)

Reseña del editor:

Futebol Nation by David Goldblatt - a thriling history of Brazil through its sporting passion

From the genius of Pelé to corruption and civil unrest, no nation has so closely aligned its national identity with playing and watching football as Brazil.

Football is regarded as a thing of joy, its yellow shirts a delightful amalgam of sport and art, entwined with its cultures of music and religion. This is true, but there is another side to the story too. The corruption of Brazil's football authorities is characteristic of its society as a whole; some of its biggest tournaments have recently been played amidst the largest protests Brazil has ever seen.

From the acclaimed author of the classic football history The Ball is Round, this book is the whole story: the players, the fans, the corruption, the passion. It will be enjoyed by readers of I am the Secret Footballer, The Numbers Game, Why England Lose and fans of football around the world.

David Goldblatt was born in London in 1965 and is a supporter of Tottenham Hotspurs and Bristol Rovers. He teaches sociology at Bristol University, reviews sports books for the TLS, and for some years wrote the Sporting Life column in Prospect magazine.

Descripción Penguin UK, 2014. Paperback. Condición: New. 1. No nation has so closely aligned its national identity with playing and watching football as Brazil. Football is regarded as a thing of joy, its yellow shirts a delightful amalgam of sport and art, entwined with its cultures of music and religion. This is true, but there is another side to the story too. Brazil may now be the sixth largest economy in the world but the corruption of its football authorities is characteristic of its society as a whole. To write the history of Brazilian football is to write the history of Brazil itself. This is the whole story - the players, the fans, the politicians, the passion - from the arrival of football in the country in 1894 just after the last Emperor had been deposed to the social unrest and riots at the Confederations Cup in 2013.
