It is a perfect window into the currents of today’s world, with all its joys and sorrows…[author] Franklin Foer takes us on a surprising tour through the world of soccer, shining a spotlight on the clash of civilizations, the international economy, and just about everything in between.” 

Quoted from How Soccer Explains the World: an (Unlikely Theory of Globalization), by Franklin Foer.

  1. That was a fascinating read|. Your insights were very informative and made me reconsider the recent trends in these areas. If only more writers are as informed and as passionate about telling everyone regarding these issues as you, we aspiring journalists would not get a really bad rep. Appreciate expressing your self so articulately. You made my day.

  2. Hi there. I wanted to advise you that some components of your web site are onerous to scan for me, as I’m color blind. I am afflicted by protanopia, but there are more forms of color blindness which will also have issues. I will understand the largest part of the web site Okay, and the parts I have difficulties with I can understand by employing a adapted browser. In any case, it’d be nice if you can remember us color-blind types whilst doing your next site redesign. Thank you.
