A reissue of the 2003 title Badfellas, updated and contextualised with 30,000 words of new research integrated with the original text. The book protrays the emergence of the corrupt FIFA dynasty created by the two presidents, Havelange and Blatter, that led to the epic scale of corruption across FIFA-connected bodies and institutions. The book shows the basis and genesis of the corrupt model of global sport governance exposed in the intervention of the FBI and the US Department of Justice in 2015, and demontstrates the efficacy of a critical and investigative model of the sociology of sport and the value of sustained, independent research into such topics and issues.
