Editors Note For Stanley Cohen, baseball is the prism through which he views the eventsof the last seventy years. In The Man in the Crowd, Cohen chronicles America'schanging mood and lifestyle from the years of World War II through the silentgeneration of the fifties, the revolutionary turmoil of the sixties through the socialdecay of the seventies, the excess of the eighties through the technologicaltransformation of the nineties, up through the sobering uncertainty of the post-9/11 present day. His narrative spans four generations as he recounts in sparklingprose how, for his immigrant father, sports was a means of assimilation into lifein the New World; the warmth of watching his son and, later, his grandson bothfall heir to his devotion; and how the game of baseball has provided his life withits truest sense of continuity.
