The panorama of baseball is unfolded in this book's sprightly words and lively photos--many published for the first time--against a background of historical turning points. From primitive stickball games played in village squares during the American Revolution to the refined professional sport of the mid-1980s, baseball has continually mirrored the American scene. Baseball's triumphant moments are featured here: the high spots of every season from the 1858 contest between the New York Knickerbockers and the Brooklyn Atlantics, to the 1985 world championship campaign of the Kansas City Royals; the constant setting of new records, including Hank Aaron's overtaking of Babe Ruth, and Pete Rose's outnumbering of Ty Cobb; and the brilliant leadership of the game's statesmen such as Ban Johnson and Branch Rickey. But baseball's headaches and coping strategies, successful or unsuccessful, get due attention. The game has weathered wars, depressions, and such social changes as immigration, urbanization, unionization, and integration that have called for agonizing but finally effective adjustments. Technological changes like floodlighting and AstroTurf(R) have required even tougher adjustments by players, and the staggering riches brought by television are a bonanza that players, managers, and owners are still learning to live with. Unlike some pessimistic observers, Voigt remains convinced that organized baseball will meet its current challenges with its historic fortitude. In this book he offers entertainment and food for thought to both new and seasoned fans.
"Natives and Newcomers" describes North Carolina's Indians and the dramatic changes that occurred when Europeans and Africans entered their land. North Carolinians of the nineteenth century dwelt in an agrarian world. It is the first volume in "The Way We Lived in North Carolina," a pioneering series that uses historic places as windows to the past.Even before Raleigh's "lost colony," Europeans had explored the coast and the mountains. the first permanent newcomers were English migrants from Virginia, followed after 1715 by planters and slaves from South Carolina. In the next half-century, thousands of German, Scotch-Irish, and Scottish settlers came by boat from Europe and by wagon from the North. Those who carved out farms in the piedmont had little in common with coastal planters or the backcountry elite of lawyers, judges, and merchants. By the late 1760s, western farmers organized as Regulators to protest unjust taxes, corrupt courts, and threats to private property -- issues that would soon reappear as part of the patriot rhetoric of the American Revolution.Locations used to illuminate this early period range from the Town Creek Indian Mound to Governor Tryon's Palace. Sites include not only colonial plantations, churches, and forts, but also frontier cabins, wilderness parks, historic trails, and Indian settlements.
Valley of Opportunity recreates an age when Indians, colonists, and post-Revolutionary settlers embraced a similar dream: to create a successful economy in the rural hinterland of the middle colonies. Peter C. Mancall draws on abundant evidence from seldom-used archives in the region, as well as from libraries on both sides of the Atlantic, to reconstruct their daily economic life. The author describes the varied economic transformations that took place in the area, considering these changes from an environmental as well as an economic standpoint. He shows how different groups of people perceived the resources of the region and how their perceptions shaped settlement patterns, land use, and the formation of commercial networks. Ultimately, each of the three peoples looked beyond the mountains that set the boundaries of their physical world and tried to establish ties to the larger commercial network that linked North America to Europe. Mancall offers connections between the development of a particular region, previously overlooked by most historians, and the wide pattern of American economic change. He breaks through old ethnocentric barriers of settlement history by portraying Indian people in their full diversity and by including Indians and whites as actors of comparable significance, and he shows how attitudes that developed in the colonial period affected economic patterns well beyond the Revolution. Integrating a range of disciplines, from anthropology through ecology and geography to zoology, he seeks to answer the questions: what did different groups of people make of the natural resources of this river valley and how did they allocate the rewards? His answers provide a novel overview of the economic culture of the eighteenth century. Studded with sharp insights and attention-catching quotations that mirror everyday life of the times, Valley of Opportunity will appeal to those interested in the development of the American economy, the impact of the Revolution on urban Americans, and the relations between the peoples who together created a vibrant world along the edges of European settlement in North America.
