To commemorate Jackie Robinson's breaking baseball's color line in 1947, Long Island University sponsored a symposium in Robinson's honor. Among those who presented papers, now assembled in this fascinating collection, were Pete Golenbock, respected sports biographer; Carl Erskine, Robinson's teammate for most of the Brooklyn years; and Lee Lowenfish, author of the best labor history of baseball, The Imperfect Diamond (1991). The topics include a personal memoir of a young Jewish boy's excitement over Robinson's debut; a surprising study of baseball attendance during Robinson's early career; and an essay that contrasts Robinson's response to racism with those of fellow black baseball pioneers Monte Irvin and Roy Campanella. The last two years have seen an abundance of Robinson material published of varying merit. This collection rises near the top of the field based on its freshness (all original pieces), diverse topics, and unique voices. In addition, Erskine's heartfelt tribute to Robinson as a friend is guaranteed to cause an ache in even the hardest heart. Wes Lukowsky
