THE GREAT AMERICAN BASEBALL STRIKE by Joe Layden

THE GREAT AMERICAN BASEBALL STRIKE

KIRKUS REVIEW

 An entry in the Headliners series, this is a straightforward presentation on the recent strike with chapters on the history of the game and labor unrest as well as speculation about baseball's future. Simply presented, without taking sides, Layden's discussion is clear and easy to follow. The design--which includes full-color and black-and-white photographs--is appealing, with interesting sidebars on peripheral subjects, e.g., antitrust laws, the vendors who were put out of work by the strike, etc. This volume lays the groundwork for what is certain to be a popular report topic. (chronology, bibliography) (Nonfiction. 10-13).
