Reading Baseball : Books, Biographies & the Business of the Game Paperback
Braham Dabscheck muses upon some of baseball's silent yet magnificently important treasures.
He examines several topics, including the business of the game (industrial and labour relations, Curt Flood, law and organised baseball); social commentary biographies (the work of Stephen Jay Gould and Ken Burns, for example); and culture of the game as it spreads across the globe to places like Australia, Japan, and Latin America.
This collection of essays is both insightful and remarkable, and is a valuable companion to any enthusiast.
