He examines several topics, including the business of the game (industrial and labor relations, Curt Flood, law, and organized baseball); social commentary and biographies (the work of Stephen Jay Gould and Ken Burns, for example); and culture of the game as it spreads across the globe to places like Australia, Japan, and Latin America.
