Young men’s will to suffer and the reproduction of global capitalism
The Precarity of Masculinity: Football, Pentecostalism, and Transnational Aspirations in Cameroon by Uroš Kovač (Berghahn Books) unpacks young Cameroonians' football dreams, Pentecostal faith, obligations to provide, and desires to migrate to highlight the precarity of masculinity in structurally adjusted Africa and neoliberal capitalism. Daniel Alsarve finds little to criticize in this important work, merely suggesting further studies and a better understanding of the concept of hegemonic masculinity.
Utställd men inte utskälld? Ett pionjärarbete om kulturarv på idrottsmuseer i Sverige
I sin doktorsavhandling Den utställda drotten: Idrott som kulturarv på idrottsmuseer i Sverige (Bokförlaget idrottsforum.org) undersöker John Berg fem svenska idrottsmuseer på olika platser i Sverige, dels som konkreta platser där idrottens kulturarv materialiseras och ställs ut, dels som kontextberoende institutioner påverkade av samhälleliga strömningar.

Successfully resolving the mysteries of Icelandic sporting successes
Iceland stunned the world when it went toe-to-toe with the elite at Euro 2016 and the 2018 World Cup. So how was such a tiny nation able to take on the giants of world football? In his book Against the Elements: The eruption of Icelandic football (Pitch Publishing), Matt McGinn attempts to explain this, and quite successfully too, according to our reviewer Daniel Alsarve, who was caught by the author’s genuine curiosity and joy in being able to convey fascinating stories about people who, against all odds, achieve success.
