Brazil's Dance with the Devil (Updated Olympics Edition)

by Dave Zirin - £13.99  Haymarket Books (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781608465897 | ISBN 10: 1608465896

The people of Brazil celebrated when they learned that in the space of two years their country would host the world's two largest sporting events: the World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016. Now they are protesting in numbers the country hasn't seen in decades.
 
Relying on field work from the favelas of Rio to the halls of power in Washington DC, Dave Zirin exposes how sports and politics have collided in spectacular fashion. One of the Boston Globe's "Best Sports Books of 2014," newly updated to assess the final tally of debt and displacement that accompanied the 2014 World Cup, eyewitness accounts of the militarized police crackdown, and new reporting on the pre-Olympic plans furthering immiseration in cities across Brazil.
