Description Globalization and Football de Roland Robertson:

This timely book provides an engaging, clear view of the interrelationships within key globalization processes and the international sport of football. Intelligently combining the conceptual and methodological aspects of global studies with the specific cultural conditions of the 'beautiful game', Giulianotti and Robertson illuminate its social history and diffusion, as well as wider cultural, economic, political and social dimensions. Using football to chart an increasing global connectivity, or globality, the authors explore how the game may be understood as a metric, mirror, motor and metaphor of globalization. Issues discussed include: Transnational Identities and the Global Civil Society- Cosmopolitanism Richard Giulianotti is Professor in the School of Applied Social Sciences at Durham University. His research interests are in sport, globalization, crime and deviance, popular culture, qualitative research methods and social theory. He has published several books on various aspects of sport, particularly its international dimensions. Roland Robertson is Professor of Sociology at the University of Pittsburgh. His books include International Systems and the Modernization of Societies (with J P Nettl, 1968) The Sociological Interpretation of Religion (1970) Meaning and Change: Explorations in the Cultural Sociology of Modern Societies (1978), Religion and Global Order (co-edited with William R Garrett, 1991) and Talcott Parsons: Theorist of Modernity (co-edited with Bryan S Turner
