Matt Zeigler's Total Football: Latin American Soccer in Alabama is a thrilling photo book that captures the spectacular action and drama of the world's most popular sport. The author, a USA Book News 2010 Best Books Award Winner for photography, depicts the skill and dedication of Alabama's Latin American immigrants in 2011. It was a farewell season brought on by HB 56, the harshest anti-immigration law in America. The intense competition, pride, dedication and love for soccer is illustrated with 82 full-color images. Zeigler freeze-frames the fast-paced tempo of soccer to reveal goalies, defenders, dirty work, headers, high-foot kicks, loose balls, playmakers, strikers, and wingers. In addition to sharp skills and pure athleticism, the images portray soccer as a refuge from exodus.
