Description

A first in sporting literature, "The Aboriginal Soccer Tribe" is the largely untold story of Aboriginal involvement with the world game. The acceptance that Aboriginal players found within the post-World War II migrant communities had a profound impact on their lives. The multicultural environment of Australian soccer provided them with a haven from the prejudice and racism of wider Australian society. Interweaving personal stories and extensive research with links to the broader Indigenous world community, this book is a celebration of the extraordinary journey taken by Aboriginal sportsmen and women to forge the way ahead for the present crop of talented soccer players.
