world cup craziness

  • About the author EB

If you’ve become as excited by the world cup as I am, you might want to check out one of these two books we just published (convenient, isn’t it?):


Africa United is the story of Africa told through the one thing that unites it—soccer. As Newsweek says, ““Bloomfield’s book presents the perfect contextual backdrop for understanding how football intersects with everyday life, politics, and national identities in this part of the world.”


How Soccer Explains the World is a look at soccer as a lens through which to view the pressing issues of our age, from the clash of civilizations to the global economy. Named one of the five best sports books of the decade by Sports Illustrated and called “an insightful, entertaining, brainiac sports road trip,” by the Wall Street Journal, it’s now available in a new edition with updated material.
