8 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Era, Roger Kahn's most important book since The Boys of Summer, chronicles the golden age of modern baseball by following the Yankees, the Giants, and the Dodgers from 1947 - the year of racial integration - through 1957, when the Giants and the Dodgers moved to California. During these eleven seasons the three teams dominated the game. Those years, when baseball was America's unrivaled national sport, saw the integration of the major leagues, the dominance of the Yankees, the arrival of television on the sports scene, and the ascendancy of the United States as a world power. Roger Kahn's keen eye and sharp pen bring it all to life again

The author of The Boys of Summer gives an opinionated account of the evolution of baseball's central event-the psychological battle between a pitcher and a batter known as the "head game". Kahn investigates not only grips, speeds, and tactics, but also knowledge, maturity, and competitive fire. Illustrations throughout. An opinionated account of the evolution of baseball's central event, by baseball's most celebrated chronicler. Beyond the techniques and training, baseball is essentially a pitcher and a batter and the psychological battle between them-the head game. Here for the first time is the story of that battle and the people who changed the course of baseball by throwing one. Roger Kahn investigates not only grips, speeds, and tactics, but also knowledge, maturity, and competitive fire. With the help of some of baseball's greatest pitchers and pitching minds-from Christy Mathewson, Don Drysdale, Bob Gibson, and Bruce Sutter to today's reigning pitching coach, Leo Mazzone-as well as his own deep knowledge of the game, Roger Kahn speaks with authority, and with the authorities, bringing new light to baseball's most pivotal contest. His acute sense of how people make history makes The Head Game a delightful and enlightening tour of baseball through the pitcher's eyes

Rickey & Robinson : the true, untold story of the integration of baseball by Roger Kahn( Book )
5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Rickey & Robinson, legendary sportswriter Roger Kahn at last reveals the true, unsanitized account of the integration of baseball, a story that for decades has relied on inaccurate secondhand reports. This story contains exclusive reporting and personal reminiscences that no other writer can produce, including revelatory material he'd buried in his notebooks in the '40s and '50s, back when sportswriters were still known to "protect" players and baseball executives. That starts first and foremost with an in-depth examination of the two men chiefly responsible for making integration happen: Branch Rickey and Jackie Robinson. Considering Robinson's exalted place in American culture (as evidenced by the remarkable success of the recent biopic), the book's eye-opening revelations are sure to generate controversy as well as conversation. No other sportswriter working today carries Kahn's authority when writing about this period in baseball history, and the publication of this book, Kahn's last, is a true literary event. In Rickey & Robinson, Kahn separates fact from myth to present a truthful portrait of baseball and its participants at a critical juncture in American history"--
