Beyond Soccer : International Relations and Politics as Seen through the Beautiful Game Paperback / softback

Description

As the world's most popular game, soccer is unique in its ability to reflect and impact culture, society, and politics.

Beyond Soccer: International Relations and Politics as Seen through the Beautiful Game provides students with a new and innovative way to learn about political science and international relations.

It uses soccer players, officials, fans, and organizations to teach political science concepts-such as geopolitics, discourses, and sovereignty-and IR theories-including realism, liberalism, and feminism.

This text also incorporates three common soccer discourses to highlight the possibilities of soccer as a tool for unity and social change, as a defender of established power, and as simultaneously a mechanism used by established power and an engine for social resistance. With exercises, discussion questions, and keywords included in each chapter, Beyond Soccer is a worthwhile and accessible educational tool.

Primarily written for undergraduate students of all levels, this book will be valuable in political science, international relations, cultural studies, and sociology courses.
