Product Description

Review

'Peter Alegi's African Soccerscapes is simply the best available overview of the history. Concise and to the point, you'll be through it before the round of 16 begins, having covered all the basics without forgetting the pleasures and the passions that animate African football.' --The Observer

'Nobody understands the background to African soccer better than the Italian-American historian Peter Alegi. This World Cup is his moment. His African Soccerscapes crams daunting erudition, gleaned over many years of study of African football, into under 200 pages of history.' --Financial Times

'Fascinating...a historian's account drawing on a wide range of sources.' --Times Literary Supplement

About the Author

Peter Alegi is Associate Professor of African History at Michigan State University. He is the author of Laduma! Soccer, Politics, and Society in South Africa. Alegi co-hosts the 'Africa Past and Present' podcast -- the most widely accessed academic podcast about African affairs (http://afripod.aodl.org).
