Soccer & Society, Volume 20, 2019, Issue 5: The impact of international football events on local, national and transnational fan cultures
Soccer and Society is an international peer-reviewed journal and the first international journal devoted to the world’s most popular game. It covers all aspects of soccer globally from anthropological, cultural, economic, historical, political and sociological perspectives. Soccer and Society encourages and favours clearly written research, analysis and comment.
The considerable growth of interest in commerce, media and politics and their relationship to sport in international academia has resulted in academics in various disciplines writing about sport. Sport in Society is a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary forum for academics to discuss the growing relationship of sport to significant areas of modern life.
Focussing on supporter activism and cooperation, Christian Brandt, Fabian Hertel and Sean Huddleston have gathered contributions for their edited volume Football Fans, Rivalry and Cooperation (Routledge). It represents a refreshing approach to the phenomenon of football fandom, according to Lise Joern, and a welcome addition to the literature in this field.
