US$ 20.95

In their innovative book, National Pastime, Stefan Szymanski and Andrew Zimbalist compare the histories and institutional structures of baseball—the U.S. national pastime—and soccer—the major sport in the rest of the world. Their indepth, cross-cultural assessment of these huge mega-businesses, particularly Major League Baseball and the English Premier League, examines what makes each sport successful and details how administrators in each can learn from the other.
