Book Reviews John Florio and Ousie Shapiro. One Nation Under Baseball: How the 1960s Collided with the National Pastime. Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 2017. pp. 222. Cloth, $29.95. Paul Hensler Among the decades of the twentieth century, the years that comprise the 1960s offer a time in which the landscape of the United States endured its greatest upheavals politically and culturally. Looking back on that era, we see how the strands of civil rights disputes, assassinations, and an unpopular war merged into a contentious and uncomfortable fabric. While many Americans contin- ued to enjoy the consumerism of post- World War II society, those benefits could not stanch the cries of African Americans for racial equality nor did they prevent several U.S. presidents from ratcheting up the nation’s military involvement in Vietnam as part of the ongoing Cold War. This is the zeitgeist into which John Florio and Ouisie Shapiro bring readers of their latest work, One Nation Under Baseball, as they juxtapose those days’ current events with their relation to the national pastime. The authors’ collaborative effort is likely to please an audience of Baby Boomers who desire to look back at a formative time of their lives
