Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0786476311, Paperback)The study of baseball history and culture shows the national pastime to be a forum of debate where issues of sport, labor, race, character and the ethics of work and play are decided. An understanding of baseball calls for consideration of different perspectives and what each contributes to the conversation.
Providing a readable textbook for undergraduates and advanced high school students, this volume offers insights into baseball history as a subject worthy of scholarly attention. Each chapter introduces a specific disciplinary approach to baseball--history, economics, media, law and fiction--and poses representative questions scholars from these fields would consider.
