As the 2014 World Cup descends on Brazil (perhaps with diverse impacts?), here’s a terrific book for soccer fans and Latin American history buffs alike. How has soccer shaped Latin America, from forerunner games in Mesoamerican cultures to the dynamic nations of today? Writing clearly and engagingly, author Andreas Campomar reveals the culture, politics, business and history of one sport and one continent’s fascinating relationship. An ebook version is available, too!
This post is deliberately clipped. There have to be so many great books on soccer and soccer culture, so how about tell us one of your favorite ones in a comment!
