FIFA, the International Football Federation, celebrates 100 years of soccer with a beautiful gift book that every fan will cherish--the first official publication on the sport's history, and the most comprehensive and wide-ranging. It's filled with rare and breathtaking images, interviews with soccer's top personalities, and other material from FIFA's extensive archives.
FIFA has spared no expense in creating this lavish volume, which celebrates a century of soccer--and the care shows on every page. It's the fullest, most fabulous history ever of this global sport, beginning with the ancient ball games that were soccer's direct ancestors, moving on to the establishment of official rules (in a London pub in 1863), and continuing right to the present day. All the richness and diversity of this extraordinary sport come through in an examination of different styles of play, various stadiums throughout the world, the international media coverage, and the growing importance of women's teams. Money, politics, personalities, fan mania, the youthful players who are soccer's future--they're all here. Above all, there are the amazing pictures, which not only capture the excitement of the game (with players caught flying in midair, and even upside down) but also feature posters, images from magazines and newspapers, and paintings by soccer-loving artists. Like the sport itself, it's simply magnificent.
