For six extraordinary years around the turn of the millennium, the Yankees were baseball's unstoppable force, with players such as Paul O'Neill, Derek Jeter, and Mariano Rivera. But for the players and the coaches, baseball Yankees-style was also an almost unbearable pressure cooker of anxiety, expectation, and infighting. With owner George Steinbrenner at the controls, the Yankees money machine spun out of control.

In this new edition of The Last Night of the Yankee Dynasty, Buster Olney tracks the Yankees through these exciting and tumultuous seasons, updating his insightful portrait with a new introduction that walks readers through Steinbrenner's departure from power, Joe Torre's departure from the team, the continued failure of the Yankees to succeed in the postseason, and the rise of Hank Steinbrenner. With an insider's familiarity with the game, Olney reveals what may have been an inevitable fall that last night of the Yankee dynasty, and its powerful aftermath.

“The best and clearest view yet inside the secret society that is the New York Yankees.” (--John Feinstein, author of Season on The Brink and Caddy For Life)

A well-mulled, highly atmospheric, and richly versed story of the Bronx Bombers’ great 1996-2001 ride. (Kirkus Reviews)

The definitive treatise on the great Yankee teams of the last seven years. (Peter Gammons, ESPN)
