Beschreibung

The bestselling follow-up to the classic The Summer of '49, illuminating the heart-pounding 1964 World Series between the Yankees and Cardinals
David Halberstam, an avid sports writer with an investigative reporter's tenacity, superbly details the end of the fifteen-year reign of the New York Yankees in October 1964. That October found the Yankees going head-to-head with the St. Louis Cardinals for the World Series pennant. Expertly weaving the narrative threads of both teams' seasons, Halberstam brings the major personalities on the field-from switch-hitter Mickey Mantle to pitcher Bob Gibson-to life. Using the teams' subcultures, Halberstam also analyzes the cultural shifts of the sixties. The result is a unique blend of sports writing and cultural history as engrossing as it is insightful.
This ebook features an extended biography of David Halberstam.



Autorentext

David Halberstam (1934-2007) was a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author. He is best known for his brazen coverage of the Vietnam War for the New York Times and for his twenty-one nonfiction books, which cover a wide array of topics such as the plight of Detroit and the auto industry, and the incomparable success of Michael Jordan. The recipient of the Mailer Prize for distinguished journalism, Halberstam wrote for numerous publications throughout his career and, according to journalist George Packer, single-handedly set the standard of "the reporter as fearless truth teller." Halberstam died in 2007.
