Description

This is a first-rate history of the global game in "The Second City." In this well-researched volume, Gabe Logan documents the deep historical roots of soccer in Chicago. Like its host city, Chicago's soccer past has been marked by both tenacity and endurance. From immigrant beginnings to early professional soccer, and from youth and ethnic clubs to corporately-sponsored teams, Logan breathes life into what he calls "Chicago's soccer mosaic." This is a local story, but it also includes the national and international narratives, while exploring the important themes of recreation, immigration, and labor. Truth be told, we need another fifty books like this, from other places around the country, to tell the whole American soccer story. A triumph!--Thomas McCabe, Rutgers University
