Staff Pick by comrade:

All too often, soccer is thought of as only consisting of millionaire superstars, relentless advertising, and brainless hooligans. This exciting and much-needed book counters all of that by showing the potential of the game for a multitude of positive purposes; from battling racism and homophobia, to community building, to personal empowerment and above all... FUN. TONS of great examples of people putting radical politics into practice with soccer.
