Description - Football in the Americas by Rory M. Miller
Football (soccer in the United States)has a long history in the Americas, but it currently displays many signs of crisis. In South America the combination
of spectator violence, poor business management, and the emigration of players is undermining professional football. In the United States, in contrast, a
professional league has taken root in the last decade, and the U.S. women's team has gained international success.
The fifteen essays in this book range widely, with theoretical and empirical contributions on the region as whole, as well as chapters specifically on Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Mexico, and the United States.
