The World Cup Chronicles: 31 Days that Rocked Brazil Kindle Edition
In these chronicles, Jorge Knijnik leads us to consider grand issues of politics, sport and culture. Along the way, he tells the fascinating stories of the coaches and players who have made Brazilian soccer such an iconic phenomenon, as well as the stadiums in which they have performed (and those in which very few people will ever perform again) and the powerful figures who oversaw the decline of the nation of football so sadly apparent in the 7-1 loss. Most of all, Jorge focuses on common people of his home country, introducing us to women and men who battle great odds to make Brazil serve its population more justly. The vivid commitment they show, with a vibrant mixture of optimism and practicality, runs through these pages, echoing the author s own passionate take on the nation of his birth and, with any luck, inspiring similar feelings in all those who read this remarkable book. --Roger Kittleson, Professor of History, Williams College --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
