SteinbergThe Colonel and Hug
By Steve Steinberg and Lyle Spatz

Kirkus starred review
“The book is not only a thorough dual biography; it is also a lucid, well-written reminder of why we love baseball. ‘Baseball never operates in a vacuum,’ write the authors, and they assemble a well-researched treasure of a book that not only chronicles the two men behind the game’s most iconic team, but the nation they helped shape as well.”

By Josephine Waggoner

Great Plains Quarterly review
“Waggoner’s Hampton Institute experience is one of many that cuts through US colonization’s propensity to dehumanize nonwhites. Other critical aspects of the book make Witness a prized resource: the manuscript’s prepublishing journey; Levine’s extensive footnoting; the inclusion of Lakota/Dakota orthography; as well as maps, pictures, and appendixes. Finally, I concur with Levine’s assessment that nonacademics are doing some of the most important research in Native Studies. Witness is proof enough.”

Labor Studies Journal review
“The book is just a great story, well told, better than any fiction in some ways because no one could possibly make up such a rich and complicated life.”
