Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

The interaction of labor, management, and government in the contemporary major league baseball industry is the concern of contributors from history, economics, business, law, and the humanities. They look at such aspects as lessons learned about collective bargaining, the strike of 1994-95, the antitrust exemption, and a game-theory analysis of relations between owners and players. The ten papers are from the June 1999 meeting of an annual symposium at Oneonta, New York.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The ten essays in this book — by authors from wide-ranging academic disciplines including history, economics, business, law, and humanities — are well researched, current, intelligent, and sometimes opposing analysis of various elements of the baseball labor scene.
