Customer Review

on 5 October 2004
This book's laudability stems from primarily:
1) It's sweeping through the globe with football as the prime theme.
2) Outlining the impact the greatest game in the universe has on different cultures.
Quite honestly, this is as much a social sciences text as it is a football book as it focuses tremendously on societal intruiges and deficiencies unknow to Western culture. I particularly found Kuper's account on the machinations at Dynamo Kiev and the contrasting styles of Carlos Bilardo and Cesar Menotti in Argentina fascinating. Putting it bluntly, this is a must read for any die hard fans who care about the game beyond the British Isles, and who desire a basic account football has on a global scale- which is suffice to say, gargantuan. KUDOS to FOOTBALL! KUDOS to Kuper!
