From the Author:

gives a description of the book's coverage.
This is the first published assessment of the 1998 World Cup in English. It puts the organisation of the World Cup in the context of French society and French football in general. It contains contributions by Gérard Houllier of Liverpool FC, and by the French academics Pierre Bourdieu and Patrick Mignon, and half a dozen other authors. There are chapters on the history and current organisation of French football, on the French national team and national identity, the fans and French fandom in general, the economics of the Finals, the building of the stadia and its local and national politics, issues of policing and security during the finals, the reporting of the Finals in the new and old media, and the national impact of the World Cup in France. There is also a diary of the Finals and 14 photos.

Synopsis:

This book examines France's hosting of the soccer World Cup, held in ten cities in summer 1998. It covers the major socio-economic, political, cultural and sporting dimensions of this global sports event, including bidding for and organizing the Finals, the improvement of sporting and transport infrastructures, marketing, merchandzing and media coverage, policing and security during the month-long competition and building a national team. The analysis of France 98 is set within the sporting context of the recent history and organization of French football (the links between football, money and politics; the sporting public) and more broadly within the French tradition of using major cultural and sporting events to focus world attention of France as a leader in the international community. The book concludes with an evocation of the day-to-day impact of four weeks of sporting festivities, and the lessons to be drawn concerning sport and national identity in an era of increasing economic, political, cultural and sporting globalization.
