The Vuvuzela Revolution (Paperback)

Richard Calland


When the World Cup circus came to town it jolted South Africa out of its insular navel-gazing and roused a nation. Defying the sceptics and the Afro-pessimists - both at home and abroad - we put on a great show not just for South Africa, but for the whole continent. The Vuvezela Revolution is the definitive account of Africa's First World Cup ...definitive because it captures not only the big questions about South Africa's handling of the global mega-event, offering serious and insightful answers about the legacy of 2010, but also because it reveals the vivid granularity of this beautiful country during that extraordinary month - Jabulani, vuvuzelas and all. Thirty days that changed and built a nation ...or did it? Was it all just an act?
