Era, 1947-1957 by R. Kahn

Book Description

"[The "Era"] is rich in anecdotes, and Kahn has a wonderful memory for the strange verbal exchanges that often pass for conversations when some combination of ballplayer, owner, and sports writer get together...This book will afford much pleasure, both for its writing and the memories it evokes." ("Choice"). "[Kahn] engagingly captures the flavor of the times by bringing to the fore the defining traits and relationships that added human dimension to the sport." ("Library Journal"). Celebrated sports writer Roger Kahn casts his gaze on the golden age of baseball, an unforgettable time when the game thrived as America's unrivaled national sport. The "Era" begins in 1947 with Jackie Robinson changing major league baseball forever by taking the field for the Dodgers. Dazzling, momentous events characterize the decade that followed-Robinson's amazing accomplishments; the explosion on the national scene of such soon-to-be legends as Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Bobby Thompson, Duke Snider, and Yogi Berra; Casey Stengel's crafty managing; the emergence of televised games; and the stunning success of the Yankees as they play in nine out of eleven World Series. The "Era" concludes with the relocation of the Dodgers from Brooklyn to Los Angeles, a move that shook the sport to its very roots. A journalist and magazine writer, Roger Kahn is the author of a number of baseball books, including "Good Enough to Dream" and "A Season in the Sun", both available in Bison Books editions.
