Borer (sociology & urban studies, Furman Univ.), a Boston resident before his move to the South, assesses the attraction of Fenway Park through his own expert lens. The results may not appeal to casual fans/readers, but they will prove invaluable not only to Red Sox and more general baseball scholars but also to students of urban life, the organization of limited inner-city space, social psychology and collective memory, how a baseball park can become a cultural shrine, and a cohort's shared values-not to mention Fenway's contributions to our understanding of "fandom." Well researched and sourced, this is best for academic libraries.-Gilles Renaud, Ontario Court of Justice, Cornwall
