Description du produit

Revue de presse

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)

Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Futebol Nation 9 juin 2015

An excellent read by an author that loves his subject and documents the rise and fall of soccer. He uses the game to reflect on Brazil, and Brazil to reflect on world soccer. The current scandal within Fifa will not surprise anyone who has read this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great book on Brazil's history through football. 3 juillet 2014
Par Mr Silent - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
A very erudite and comprehensive account of the birth of Brazil as a nation, a society and a football powerhouse from the 1890s to the 2014 World Cup demonstrations. The author knows a lot about the sport but also discusses cultural, social, political and civil society aspects of football through several generations of Brazilians. If you want to understand Brazil, this is an essential read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 more a Roberto Carlos banana kick just wide than a Pele bicycle kick goal 30 juin 2014
Par Brian Maitland - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I liked the fact author David Goldblatt copped to the fact he was not fluent in Portuguese and therefore pointed out his book could never come close to fully capturing the hows and whys Brazil is a futebol nation. Given that he does a pretty good job even if I did not get why having art, books, movie and songs done about soccer made any nation all that more a football nation. I also thought he needed to fill us readers in way more on who these artists were and not just give such short shrift to so many.

Additionally, the soccer in this book is mainly about Brazil's national team in World Cup Finals. It barely touches on Brazil when it plays in the Copa America let alone its club teams playing in the Copa Libertadores. Despite, for example, mentioning Corinthians is Brazil's most popular club team and saying thousands of their fans cashed in their life savings just to fly to Japan to watch their beloved take the World Club Cup in 2012, he just never explains how Corinthians got such a fan base nor why watching on TV is not enough for so many of their fans in a tournament the rest of the world outside Latin America, pretty much ignores.

Putting aside these negatives, this book is a must-read right now. I found the facts about stadium building in the '70s was eerily foreshadowing the choices of venues and new stadium building for the 2014 World Cup Finals. You'll soon understand how Manaus who have no team at all in any of Brazil's pro leagues and how Fortaleza ended up hosting not only group matches but two in the knockout stages including a quarter-final despite being a minor player in Brazil soccer. Even in Brazil, Fortaleza's two clubs--Ceará Sporting Club and Fortaleza Esporte Clube--are afterthoughts even with Ceará getting to a Copa do Brasil Cup Final in 2011.

Yet when you slice through it all, you're probably better off reading Alex Bellos's Futebol: The Brazilian Way Of Life to really learn about soccer in Brazil. Futebol Nation is only good for seeing what has gone on since Bellos's book came out in 2003. Warning also, Futebol Nation has way more on Brazilian politics than you'll ever need to know.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A primer on Brazil, not to mention indispensable for understanding the country's football culture 29 juin 2014

David Goldblatt is very modest in his acknowledgements about the shortcomings of "Futebol Nation," but that doesn't take away from how useful and entertaining the book is about Brazilian football, culture and history. Highly recommended.
