How Soccer Explains the World: Globalization

How Soccer Explains the World : An Unlikely Theory of Globalization

Heard the author, Franklin Foer, at Politics and Prose. Semi-interesting. I figured if anything could make the topic of globalization interesting, it'd be my favorite sport. He seemed to know a lot about soccer, and the crowd seemed semi-informed, which was cool, but nothing made me want to plunk down 20-odd bucks for the book.

A couple reviews.

And an article by Foer stating that Kerry is down with soccer?
