Críticas:

'The first-ever serious (and eminently readable) study showing just how useful a lens the sport offers for viewing the politics of the Middle East, and how deep the mutual effects. Read it if you're interested in the football scene in the region, certainly. But read it especially for novel insights and vignettes on regional politics.' --Gerd Nonneman, Dean, Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatar and Visiting Professor of Gulf Studies, University of Exeter

'This might well be the single most important and informative book on the Arab Spring yet written. A must read for anyone who wants to understand the deeper social and cultural processes underlying the uprisings and counter-revolutionary processes that have shaken the region the last five years.' --Mark Levine, Professor of History at the University of California, Irvine

'Dorsey's book offers a unique and fascinating perspective of the Middle East by looking at it through the lens of its most popular sport. His many years of living in the region and his knowledge of its history and culture, combined with skilful storytelling create a unique work that will be of interest to scholars as well as the general public.' --Alon K. Raab, co-editor of The Global Game: Writers on Soccer and of Soccer in the Middle East

Reseña del editor:

James M. Dorsey introduces the reader to the world of Middle Eastern and North African football - an arena where struggles for political control, protest and resistance, self-respect and gender rights are played out. Politics was the midwife of soccer in the region, with many clubs being formed as pro- or anti-colonial platforms and engines of national identity and social justice. This book uncovers the seldom-told story of a game that evokes deep-seated passions. Football fans are shown to be a major political force and one of the largest civic groups in Egypt after the Muslim Brotherhood: their demands for transparency, social justice, and an end to corruption sparked vicious street battles that left scores dead and thousands wounded. Discontent in Algeria erupts regularly at matches where fans demand the ouster of military leaders. A folk-song crooning national goalkeeper leads protests in Homs, Syria's third largest city and scene of some of the worst violence perpetrated by Bashar al-Assad's regime. In a country that bans physical education for girls, Saudi women have established clandestine football clubs and leagues. The book further tells the story of Somali child soldiers turned soccer stars and Iranian women who dress as men to smuggle themselves into stadiums to watch matches.
