ABOUT THE BOOK: Professional sports today have truly become a global force, a common language that anybody, regardless of their nationality, can understand. Yet sports also remain distinctly local, with regional teams and the fiercely loyal local fans that follow them. Gaming the World examines the 21st century phenomenon of global sports, in which professional teams and their players have become agents of globalization, while at the same time fostering deep-seated and antagonistic local allegiances, and spawning new forms of cultural conflict and prejudice.
