The Spanish Craze: America’s Fascination with the Hispanic World, 1779-1939

Issei Baseball: The Story of the First Japanese American Ballplayers

by Robert K. Fitts

Review in Spectrum Culture:

“For anyone who loves baseball or Japanese culture or, preferably, both – in other words, anyone who lists Takeshi Kitano’s Boiling Point as among their favorite films – this is a fantastic book that covers a less regarded aspect of the origins of the game in Japan.”
