In 1974, the Brazilian sports official João Havelange was elected FIFA’s seventh president since 1903. Havelange’s road to power has been mapped in a doctoral dissertation, The Making of a Global FIFA: Cold War Politics and the Rise of João Havelange to the FIFA Presidency, 1950–1974 by Luiz Guilherme Burlamaqui (de Gruyter). Historian Björn Horgby is our appreciative reviewer, apart from some marginal remarks, and he foresees Burlamaqui’s study becoming a standard work in various branches of sports research.
