Description

European societies have long been tarnished by racial discrimination, and the game of football is no exception. With immigrants arriving from former colonies, European Union member-states, and third-world countries, integration in these two societies has been ascribed significance across the continent. Considering that the conduct of football fans in stadiums reflects_to a certain extent_society as a whole, this book examines the impact of racism upon the popular game. Anti-Racism in European Football provides a critical assessment of the campaigns and related policies of organizations that work to understand racism in football. It explores what has been achieved by the organizations' campaigns, the problems they encountered, and how these were overcome. In its focus on the work that anti-racism organizations carry out, this book's original contributions should appeal to professionals in football-related NGOs, and students and scholars working in social science fields related to racism and sport.show more

This is a timely and interesting book. The various contributors bring into focus the range and changing forms of anti-racist initiatives in European football. In doing so they have produced a volume that is a must-read for anyone who is interested in both understanding and countering racism and xenophobia in contemporary football cultures. -- John Solomos, City University London This book is a very useful addition to the literature on sporting anti-racisms.
