    An impressive and well-researched early history of association football in the US

    Across North America, native peoples and colonists alike played a variety of kicking games long before soccer’s emergence in the late 1800s. In From Football to Soccer: The Early History of the Beautiful Game in the United States (University of Illinois Press), Brian D. Bunk examines the development and social impact of these sports through the rise of professional soccer after World War I. Matthew McDowell’s knowledgeable and appreciative review indicates that it’s a book well worth reading.
