The author, who lived in Japan for five years as a soldier, government employee, Fulbright scholar, translator, and editor, suveys the history by examining the setting, Japanese society and culture. Boxed material throughout the book provides supplementary or anecdotal information and presents material on baseball in each chapter that follows the progression of this sport, a shared cultural icon.
