God is round - tackling the giants, villains, triumphs, and scandals of the world's favorite game by Villoro, Juan, 1956- author.

God is round - tackling the giants, villains, triumphs, and scandals of the world's favorite game

What was the greatest goal of all time? Why do the Hungarians have a more philosophical sense of defeat than the Mexicans? Do the dead play soccer? On a planet where FIFA has more members than the United Nations, Juan Villoro's examination of soccer and its 3.5 billion-person fandom has stakes beyond those of such playful questions. Soccer is more than just a game; it is a catalyst for panglobal unity and even, Villoro suggests, the "recovery of childhood."

The language animal - the full shape of the human linguistic capacity by Taylor, Charles, 1931- author.

The language animal - the full shape of the human linguistic capacity

The thesis of Taylor's new book is that this view neglect

The new prophets of capital by Aschoff, Nicole Marie, 1980- author.

The new prophets of capital

Mythmaking is as central to sustaining our present economy as profit-making. In the 1980s, Thatcher and Reagan's stories about welfare queens, greedy workers and the beauty of the free market cleared the way for an assault on organized labor that led to the boom times of the 1990s. With severe environmental degradation, breathtaking inequality, lousy job prospects and increasing alienation among youth today, capitalism would seem to have come up against its own contradictions.
