Summary
"This collection explores soccer's development in the United States as waves of immigrants arrived and America's cities began to industrialize and become major cultural hubs in the late-nineteenth century. While America is largely known today as one of the few countries in which soccer is not its primary sport, this collection aims to shed light on the US's little-known soccer history by focusing on immigration and immigrant stories playing out in major American cities"--
