This volume draws together scholarship across a number of disciplines - history, sociology, media and cultural studies, political science, Slavonic studies - to examine the significance of the sport of football within Southeastern Europe, with an especial focus on countries of the former Yugoslavia. The volume is timely as there is growing recognition inside and beyond the academy that football is a key cultural site in which the tensions within the region have been, and continue to be, reflected. Important issues such as resurgent nationalism, ethno/religious identity construction, and collective masculine identity are played out in relation to the sport of football. The papers within the volume explore these and other themes in detailed case studies that will be of interest to academics and policy makers concerned with wanting to know more about how football should be considered within agendas focused on reconciliation and a socially inclusive future.

This book was previously published as a special issue of Sport in Society.

MEDIA REVIEWS

`The volume provides a thorough, valuable introduction to current issues surrounding football and society and its entanglement with nationalism in countries ravaged by ethnic conflict.'

Michael E Allen (October 2015) Rutgers University for CritCom- Council for European Studies:

'The study of sport in Southeastern Europe and especially in post-Yugoslavia has been revitalised and expanded in recent years by a new cohort of researchers, and Football in Southeastern Europe does an effective job of showcasing how the field is emerging: some of the projects represented in this book have continued since the volume was published and will no doubt lead to books of their own.'

Catherine Baker (2018) JSEE Vol. 42.1.
