9780786441297: The Politics of Baseball: Essays on the Pastime and Power at Home and Abroad

Examining baseball not just as a game but as a social, historical, and political force, this collection of sixteen essays looks at the sport from the perspectives of race, sexual orientation, economic power, social class, imperialism, nationalism, and international diplomacy. Together, the essays underscore the point that baseball is not just a form of entertainment but a major part of the culture and power struggles of American life as well as the nation's international footprint.

Review:

"Editor Briley has done a fine job of choosing and arranging the essays into a strong lineup...baseball intersects with many aspects of culture but none more important than politics, and Briley and his contributors have made a noteworthy contribution to the subject"--Nine.
