Softcover, first edition, 364g, 240pgs. With the fall of Saddam in 2003, the despotic reign of Uday Hussein - his eldest son who had run sport for his personal glory and gain - came to an end. In the hope of a new spirit of openness about sport in Iraq, Simon Freeman set off on a quest to understand its compelling football story. Book is in very good condition with only very mild general wear and tear and light page discolouration throughout, otherwise no other pre-loved markings.
