Football in Southeastern Europe: From Ethnic Homogenization to Reconciliation by John Hughson

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 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 published as a special issue of Sport in Society.
