Football and Migration: Perspectives, Places, Players

Richard Elliott (Editor), John Harris (Editor)

    Research output: Book/ReportAnthology/Edited Book


    Football is an incredibly powerful case study of globalization and an extremely useful lens through which to study and understand contemporary processes of international migration. This is the first book to focus on the increasingly complex series of migratory processes that contour the contemporary game, drawing on multi-disciplinary approaches from sociology, history, geography and anthropology to explore migration in football in established, emerging and transitional contexts.
