  • 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

  • The Death and Life of the Single-Family HouseThe Death and Life of the Single-Family House
    Lessons from Vancouver on Building a Livable City

    Nathanael Lauster

    "In this ingenious study of the predicament of single-family housing, Nathanael Lauster dissects the root of the problem: the complex psychology of the single-family lifestyle. What's really behind the seeming preference for the detached home, and is it valid? Diving deeply, Lauster unravels the cognitive dissonance of the ‘house habit’ and convincingly demonstrates how the single-family house-while on the surface appearing to offer solutions to urban problems-in reality causes more trouble than it's worth. The hopeful message Lauster offers is that even the most house-oriented resident can reinterpret what urban dwelling means and successfully kick the single-family habit."—Emily Talen, University of Chicago and author of City Rules: How Regulations Affect Urban Form
