 About the Book 

Soccer is the worlds most popular sport, which makes it the most multicultural of sports. From this it should follow that the multicultural movement here in America would strongly support soccer. But instead of embracing the sport of the Other,MoreSoccer is the worlds most popular sport, which makes it the most multicultural of sports. From this it should follow that the multicultural movement here in America would strongly support soccer. But instead of embracing the sport of the Other, the movement has ignored sports, and while younger multiculturalists may be soccer fans, the older ones have generally clung to Americas own sports. Soccer in America has ended up being a sport for those in the middle or even on the right rather than for those on the left. The people who show up at soccer games include fraternity jocks, sorority girls and members of the military, none of whom are thought of as multiculturalist or open-minded by those on the left. This book is about sports in America and the rest of the world. The many topics it explores include soccers place in the world, a comparison of the sports environments in America and England, a critical examination of Americas sports, the history of prejudice against soccer in America, and the failure of many of Americas leftists to overcome that prejudice.
