Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0789302705, Hardcover)

In association with the United States Soccer Federation, Universe Publishing presents Women's Soccer: The Game and the World Cup, an official licensed product of the Women's World Cup.

The United States-the Olympics and Goodwill Games champion-hosted soccer's fourth Women's World Cup in eight cities during the summer of 1999. With opening ceremonies at Giants Stadium and the final at the Rose bowl, this was the largest women's sporting event in the world. Needless to say, the United States won.

This publication presents the women's game and its star teams and athletes in an inspiring series of articles on special women. Readers will meet the pioneers of the sport who have transcended this traditionally male bastion to make soccer as popular and meaningful to girls as it is to boys. Features by the world's top soccer journalists portray the "real soccer moms" such as USA team captain Carla Overbeck (mother of two), star players Mia Hamm and Kristine Lilly, who have proudly represented the USA since they were 16 years old, and Julie Foudy, who battled her sponsor to prevent soccer balls being made by child labor, make this a book about role models for all Americans.
