From the Back Cover:

The Russian Premier league is the fastest-growing, most extreme and intriguing football league in the world.

The collapse of the USSR in 1991 seemed to signal the death of the Russian domestic game, as the money, the players and the fans left. But now, with oil prices at a record high, the oligarchs who carved up the country’s assets in the post-Soviet turmoil are willing to support the nation’s football clubs and their dreams of glory.

In Football Dynamo, Marc Bennetts journeys into the heart of Russia to find the managers, oligarchs, players, pundits and fans that define the national game. From interviews with Russian internationals such as ex-Manchester United star Andrei Kanchelskis to the symbolism of a club from war-torn Chechnya lifting the Russian FA Cup in 2004 and the controversial defeat of England in the Euro 2008 qualifiers, his quest unwittingly uncovers shocking revelations about corruption, hooliganism and racism, but also the true beauty of the game and the country.

Marc Bennetts is a journalist and translator who has written for Insight Guides in conjunction with The Discovery Channel and DK's Eyewitness Guides on Russia and Russian football. He supports Nottingham Forest.
