  • Boathouse RowBoathouse Row
    Waves of Change in the Birthplace of American Rowing
    Dotty Brown

    "[A] must-read for anyone interested in the sport of rowing and the enormous contributions of those who once plied the Schuylkill River. Dotty Brown chronicles not only the famous athletes of yore, like John B. Kelly, but those noteworthy artists, architects, businessmen, and politicians who helped to build this historic piece of riverbank into the living dynasty that it remains today. With the deft hand of a skilled writer, she unravels a Philadelphia story filled with fascinating characters, revealing new insights on old stories that have remained shrouded in mystery, and supplements her narrative with beautiful artwork and photography."—Daniel J. Boyne, author of Kelly: A Father, a Son, an American Quest



  • Will Big League Baseball Survive?Will Big League Baseball Survive?
    Globalization, the End of Television, Youth Sports, and the Future of Major League Baseball

    Lincoln A. Mitchell

    "Columnists and pundits love to write Major League Baseball's obituary, even as the league sets new records for revenue and attendance. Lincoln Mitchell confronts this paradox with a deep and provocative examination of the game's past, present, and future. Will Big League Baseball Survive? is a book that all serious fans should read—and the league's commissioner, perhaps, most of all."—Sam Miller, co-author of The Only Rule Is It Has to Work: Our Wild Experiment Building a New Kind of Baseball Team
