An interesting book describing soccer and it's effects on culture and politics (at least to a certain extent.) The author travelled to some 22 countries to get his stories. Some are fairly straight forward in a traditional way: for example, the state of soccer in the US, or the fervor of the Celtic-Rangers or Germany-Holland rivalry. Other chapters delve into the darker side, such as Argie generals or East German secret police meddling into the game.
