The people of Brazil celebrated when they found out they'd be hosting the 2014 World Cup - the world's most-viewed sporting tournament - and the 2016 Olympics. Now they are protesting in numbers the country haven't seen in decades, with Brazilians taking to the streets to try to reclaim the sports they love but see being corrupted by powerful corporate interests and greed. In this compelling new book, Dave Zirin examines how sports and politics are colliding in remarkable fashion in Brazil, opening up an international conversation on the culture and politics of sport.
