This spare but terrific book offers revealing photographs of both the star and the lesser-known Latino players, accompanied by concise, insightful text. Villegas's pictures (there are also archival images) show players in motion, along with fans and athletes in still frames. Wendel's narrative celebrates early icons like Luque and Dihigo and generational counterparts Minoso, Clemente, and Cepeda. The book mainly points to Cuban, Puerto Rican, Dominican, and Venezuelan stars. A useful time line is included. Highly recommended for general libraries.Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
