World football is in crisis. It was a book that FIFA and Sepp Blatter tried to ban. The corruption scandal engulfing FIFA is arguably the biggest story in the history of modern sport and a watershed for sport governance. More than a decade ago, John Sugden and Alan Tomlinson laid the foundations for subsequent investigations with the publication of Badfellas, a groundbreaking work of critical sport sociology that exposed the systematic corruption at the heart of world football. Now re-issued to combine the original contents of Badfellas with new chapters covering the current crisis, this book points to the ways in which FIFA's new administration can learn from the Blatter story.

The Secret World of FIFA: Bribes, Vote Rigging, and Ticket Scandals, and a book I use in this blog post by Sugden and Tomlinson: FIFA and the Contest for World Football: who rules the people’s game?. With multiple authors writing books about the rampant corruption in FIFA, it behooves the organization to take a look at some of their policies; and yet FIFA has not appeared to address these issues in any sort of comprehensive manner over the years.

In FIFA and the Contest for World Football Sugden and Tomlinsonprovide the first full-length study of FIFA (the FederationInternationale de Football Association) and its role in framing andcontrolling world football. Interviewing more than seventyinfluential leaders world-wide and drawing on exclusive documentarysources, the authors demonstrate FIFA's importance intwentieth-century sport, and in an increasingly global consumerculture. The first part of the book covers the origins and organizationalcharacteristics of FIFA, and of the European and South Americanfederations. The second part considers how new and powerful playershave emerged in FIFA in the wake of the collapse of empires. Thebook includes analyses of football's contributions to the growth ofnationalism and anti-imperialism; the use of football by ruthlessand sometimes corrupt officials and political despots; and itsexpansion under the influence of increasingly prominent commercialpaymasters. Football's role in Africa, Asia and the USA is alsoilluminated, and FIFA's global mission and rhetoric evaluated.The book is a valuable addition to the politics and social historyof sport, and to the sociology of the global system and thechanging world order. It will be of interest to students andresearchers in the areas of sport studies, cultural studies and thesociology of popular culture, and to everyone concerned with thesocial organization of one of the world's most popular sports.

First of all the only review of this book on Amazon entered "December 30, 1998" is done
by someone who hasn't read the book and doesn't even guess right about its content.

This is about the history of FIFA and associated confederations (uefa, caf...)
through the reigns of its main presidents (Rimet, Rous, Havelange...).
I will save you the pain of reading it.
The most importants facts I have learned by doing so are:

- The president of FIFA as almost dictatorial powers (including huge weight in choosing world cup hosts)
- The aliance with coca cola and Adidas in the 70's as given FIFA the finance for the developement of the game as
we know it in exchange for giving coca cola intrance in dificult markets like China, USSR. (Having Coca Cola distributed in the host country of a FIFA tournament is compulsary).
- During the cold war, club football in eastern europe was one of the only forms of
contest against russia and the soviet power.
- FIFA is one big ruthless political organisation
- football generates more money than any huge company (general motors ect...)
- The combinaison of a huge political power (for example helping to recognise a country, legitimating a regime ect...)
financial power (exponent of globalisation, sponsors, tv ect...) unequaled world wide apeal make it a magnet
for the most unsavory and powerfull characters.
- On the positive side it has enormous healing and togetherness powers which are far superior
to many humanitarian organisation and somethimes used greatly.

I wouldn't have read this book if I had known... Instead of being a really informative text
on the administration of football it is turned into the most pompous, pretentious Academic pile of bore.
Do you remember how school managed to put you off incredibly interesting stuff like, reading, history and
sience? This manages to make a football book inacessible and incredibly boring just by its style.
A couple of academics peacocks prefering to look o' so clever rather than transmiting their
prety good knowledge of an area that is so unknown to the average fan like me.

I will now leave you with a splendid example of this... Style... Good night.

"Robertson has argued that an historical, comparative and interdisciplinary social science framework
can be developed if social theory is refocused and expanded so as to make concern with 'the world' a
central hemeuneutic, and in such a way as to constrain empirical and comparative-historical research in the
same direction."

This book takes you through all of the Fifa soccer teams. It even talks about the teams in depth, like about their past history of goals and victories, and even in losses. It takes you to the best players on those teams and tells the victories or losses that the player had on the team. On the players, it will also tell you all the clubs they were part of and their avarage goals they made in the past. So I think think this book is really good for you if you love a lot of European International Soccer. Even some of it will take you through the Ebglish football scene.
