Soccer, a.k.a (association) football is the most popular mass spectator sport in the world. Soccer & Society is the first international journal devoted to the game of soccer, and aims to focus on the game in the context of a more global world. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: FIFA and UEFA, a critical review of the two organizations through the lens of institutional theory and MacIntyre’s philosophical schema by Theofilos Pouliopoulos & Konstantinos Georgiadis.
In an edited volume by Danyel Reiche & Tamir Sorek, Sport. Politics, and Society in the Middle East (Hurst Publishers), ten contributors in as many chapters discuss the intersection of political and cultural processes related to sport in the region. Dan-Erik Andersson is pleased to find a book that shares his views on the role of sport in society, although he would have liked to see a commonality in the contributions beyond geographic locality.
