Reviews

"Alright, good soul of football, now you have your own classic. . . . Soccer vs. the State reaches so far beyond the limits of mainstream left-wing football discourse that its purchase is no less than a must." --11 Freunde (May 28, 2011)
"Kuhn's wonderful, accessible and necessary book develops football's beginnings through the tribalism, sexism, and bigotry that qualified the game during much of the 20th century." --Freedom newspaper
"Kuhn is impressive in his global and historical scope, and in acknowledging gender and sexuality questions as well as those of class and race, as he looks at issues ranging from the exploitation of African players to the way the World Cup has been abused politically." --When Saturday Comes (September 2011)
"One has to be a cynic not to be touched by many of the heart-warming stories in the book. Sometimes football does indeed stand for freedom, equality, and togetherness." --Offside magazine
"This collection of essays by various hands seems a daunting rag-bag of radical ideas at first glance but, helped by deft linking commentaries from Gabriel Kuhn, a common theme soon emerges: fans worldwide have a duty to fight attempts by government and big business to control football for their own ends." --The Independent (August 2011)
