Africa, Football and FIFA : Politics, Colonialism and Resistance Paperback / softback
by Paul Darby
Part of the Sport in the Global Society series
This book explores the role of FIFA in brokering the development of football in Africa and its relationship with that continent's football associations and regional governing body.
Africa is no longer on the periphery of world football but the economic disparities between the first and the third worlds hinder the development of the game.
The author shows convincingly how Africa's advance within world football is tied to its national political economy and how the balance of power within FIFA still clearly favours its European members.
