Football Against the Enemy, by Simon Kuper (1994)

SIMON Kuper travelled to 22 countries from South Africa to Italy, from Russia to the USA, to examine the way football has shaped them.

During his journeys he met an extraordinary range of players, politicians and of course the fans themselves, all of whom revealed in their different ways the unique place football has in the life of the planet.
