European Football is Black and White offers an engaging interpretation of a disturbing phenomenon in Europe's favorite sport: football violence fueled by racism. While many fans across Europe have used football to further destructive, ethnocentric agendas, there are also Europe-wide initiatives in the football stadium to combat the almost endemic problem. Christos Kassimeris analyses political ideologies that have influenced football supporters, drawing attention to the increasing politicization of football and the footballization of politics. He also considers the contributions of nationalism, social class, and media coverage before assessing attempts by various groups, from the Football Against Racism in Europe (F.A.R.E.) network to the European Union itself, to rectify the problem. Ultimately, football needs to be dissociated from both racism and politics for the sport to flourish. Unlike more traditional attempts to explain the football violence and racism, this book seeks to establish a Europe-wide as well as national explanatory framework for this racism from a political perspective. This study will draw the interest not only of scholars across the Humanities and Social Sciences, but also of ordinary football supporters.

Review:

...the book's factual content makes is a valuable resource. Recommended. All readers, all levels. (. CHOICE, May 2008)

Kassimeris is very thorough in his cataloging of the myriad programs, legislation, and educational efforts that have been undertaken and continue to unfold across Europe. Christos Kassimeris has produced an informative work that is especially strong atcovering more recent attempts to address the existence of racism and ethnic prejudice in European soccer.... (Chris Mack H-German, February 2010)

European Football in Black and White provides an authoritative and comprehensive review of the state of racism and antiracism in the Continent's favorite game. Kassimeris shows how developments relating to football both reflect and shape broader ethnic and national tensions. This is an important book that will provide invaluable to all of those interested in the social, cultural, and political dynamics of contemporary European football. (Michael Rowe, associate professor, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand)
