Soccer & Society, Volume 23, 2022, Issue 4–5 | It’s a whole new ball game’: Thirty Years of the English Premier League
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: Looking forward, glancing back; competitive balance and the EPL by Daniel Plumley, Girish Ramchandani, Sarthak Mondal & Rob Wilson.
In this original review for idrottsforum.org by Dominic Malcolm, Peter Krustrup’s long-awaited summing-up of 17 years of research around the health benefits of football, Football as Medicine: Prescribing Football for Global Health Promotion, edited with Daniel Parnell (Routledge), is critically assessed. While commending the basic premise of the book and its trust in football as medicine, he regrets the lack of critical perspectives.
