Baseball on the Border:
A Tale of Two Laredos
Alan M. Klein

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"With Klein's Baseball on the Border we are treated to a glimpse of what an astute observer of social life, popular culture, and sport can teach us about larger cultural issues. With a sensitive eye for detail, a nuanced understanding of culture, and conceptual acumen, Klein provides a fascinating account of baseball as a transnational phenomenon. Not only do we learn about how baseball is played within the context of these diverging cultures, but we also learn about the structural dimensions of nationalism and how this gets borne out through sport."--Patricia A. Adler, University of Colorado, and Peter Adler, University of Denver

"Read this book, enjoy the characterizations of the players, managers, and administrators ... listen to the crowd cheer for their home town heroes, and pause to think, as Klein paints the picture with a masters stroke, of what this [book] can tell us about transnational relations and the impact of sport."--Patricia A. Adler and Peter Adler, authors of Backboards and Blackboards
