Soccer is much more than a game, or even a way of life. It's a perfect window into the crosscurrents of today's world, with all its joys and sorrows. In this remarkably insightful, wide-ranging work of reportage, Franklin Foer takes us on a surprising tour through the world of soccer, shining a spotlight on the clash of civilizations, the international economy, and just about everything in between. How Soccer Explains the World is an utterly original book that makes sense of our troubled times.
Franklin Foer is the editor of The New Republic. His writing has also appeared in the New York Times, the Atlantic Monthly, Slate, and New York magazine. He lives in Washington, D.C.
