By Marcos Guterman

De esporte de elite a entretenimento das massas; do amadorismo ao profissionalismo; dos salários modestos à globalização-exportação; o uso político do esporte e o uso da política pelo esporte. Quando se estuda futebol no Brasil, não se fala "só" de um jogo, mas da própria história do país, emaranhada com a evolução nas quatro linhas do campo. O jornalista e historiador Marcos Guterman mostra a trajetória do futebol no país desde sua chegada da Inglaterra, a formação dos primeiros clubes, os craques, os grandes fracassos, as peculiaridades. O livro narra os acontecimentos do último século no Brasil, mas principalmente mostra como política, economia, sociedade e futebol estão muito mais associados do que costumamos imaginar. Assim, o esporte mais well known do mundo, se lido corretamente, consegue explicar o Brasil.
