Feet of the Chameleon: The Story of African Football

Feet of the Chameleon: The Story of African Football Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In June 2010, Africa will host the World Cup, the most significant global sporting spectacle ever to take place on the continent. South Africa's successful bid was in many ways unsurprising: soccer thrives in every country in Africa, and is a vitally important aspect of communities. This fascinating history traces the development of soccer in Africa and investigates what makes African football unique. Drawing on a wide range of sources, it also examines how the game fits into the social and political life of the continent.

Ian Hawkey is a soccer journalist for the Sunday Times.
