HON 430.1001, Soccer and the Making of the Modern World (McMahon): Library Guides

Soccer and the Making of the Modern World

Books and ebooks

UNLV's library catalog uses Library of Congress classification terms, which means that any book about soccer will have the word soccer in the book's subject description, even if the title and text of the book only uses the term football. 

Other good keywords might include the name of a country, region or continent that you are interested in. 

The searches below link to lists of books about various aspects of the game "Online access" means that the book can be read online; Lied Library Book Stacks means that it is a printed book available on the 3, 4 or 5th floor of Lied Library - make a note of the call number and use that as the address to locate the book on the shelf.


These online books map out areas of research by scholars in many different disciplines who study soccer. Expand the sections in the table of contents to find essays with topic overviews like race and racism in football, football fandom, football and migration, and the economics of football.
