Brooklyn's Dodgers: The Bums, the Borough, and the Best of Baseball, 1947-1957 / Edition 1by Carl E. Prince
Pub. Date: 04/28/1997
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
Prince captures the intensity and depth of the Brooklyn Dodgers and of the team's relationship to the community and its people in the 1950s. Ethnic and racial tensions were part and parcel of a working class borough; the Dodgers' presence smoothed the rough edges of the ghetto conflict always present in the life of Brooklyn.
