A comparative anthology of baseball around the world: the many different meanings of the game
This book is an overview of the origins of baseball in America in the 19th century, building on the bat and ball games in England and earlier elsewhere, and its rapid spread around the world from that time until the present. This book provides a cultural perspective in which “America's past time” is discussed, and how it became so in the context of issues such as gender, race, and ethnicity.
