Summary
Soccer is not only the world's most popular sport; it's also one of the most widely shared forms of global culture. The Language of the Game is a passionate and engaging introduction to soccer's history, tactics, and human drama. Profiling soccer's full cast of characters--goalies and position players, referees and managers, commentators and fans--historian and soccer scholar Laurent Dubois describes how the game's low scores, relentless motion, and spectacular individual performances combine to turn each match into a unique and unpredictable story. He also shows how soccer's global reach makes it an unparalleled theater for nationalism, international conflict, and human interconnectedness
Summary
Published to coincide with the 2018 World Cup, an enthusiastic and enthralling introduction to soccer’s history, tactics and human drama profiles the sport’s full cast of characters and shows how soccer’s global reach makes it an unrivaled platform for nationalism, international conflict and human interconnectedness
