Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0714842362, Hardcover)There are few things that unify people across the world better than the game of football. More than just kicking a ball about, football stirs passions beyond rational thought, affecting the mood of a nation or even the fortunes of a government. Since the 1930s, various members of Magnum have photographed the world of football, documenting the teams, the supporters, and the game, from barefeet on African mud or a Brazilian beach, to kicking cans in the backstreets of Newcastle. This collection of photographs shows how deep the roots of football run and how wide they are spread, how football culture crosses every boundary of nationality, race and religion, how it throws up important social issues such as the empowerment of women through football in Iran and the bitter religious rivalry between Glasgow's two teams Rangers and Celtic. The photographs combine the beauty of the game itself with the aesthetic quality associated with the photographers of Magnum and provides a celebration of the "world game" as well as a social portrait of the world over a period of more than half a century.
