Product Details


“A comprehensive, controversial examination of sports as a major force in American life.”Los Angeles Times
“Michener’s life was saved by sports twice. In return, he has issued a long, lovingly critical, prodigiously researched account of the passions and politics of America at organized play. Rich in anecdote, source material and his own shrewd commentary.”The New York Times Book Review
“Like just about everything James Michener has produced, Sports in America is a thoughtful, well-written document that’s thoroughly researched. . . . For anyone interested in how the ball bounces in the U.S. of A., the answers are all here.”The Wall Street Journal
“Encyclopedic . . . amusing and sometimes alarming.”The Washington Post
