Product Description

Review

"If the Baseball Hall of Fame were to assemble a compilation of books that belong in a business of baseball canon, Lee Lowenfish's third edition of Imperfect Diamond would easily hold a prominent spot on the list."—Wayne McDonnell, Lovemyteam.com
(Wayne McDonnell Lovemyteam.com 2010-09-14)

“Not only an entertaining book, and not only a complete history of this important topic . . . it sets the standards for precision and presentation that other baseball authors should strive to match.”—Keith Olbermann, Baseball Magazine
(Keith Olbermann Baseball Magazine)

“If anyone wants to get a handle on baseball today—free agencies, the money, the relationships between players and owners, etc.—this book is a must.”—Red Barber, National Public Radio
(Red Barber National Public Radio 1991-05-31)

“The seminal study of baseball’s labor history.”—USA Today Baseball Weekly
(USA Today Baseball Weekly)

“A dramatic, stirring portrayal of traditional confrontation between labor and management. . . . An absorbing account of a hitherto little-publicized American labor movement.”—New Republic
(New Republic)

“Thorough and comprehensive, the clarity of the prose is a welcome respite from traditional ‘baseballese.’ . . . An important work, not only for baseball history, but also for U.S. history, the labor movement, and the history of capitalism.”—Library Journal
(Library Journal)
