The Empire Strikes Out: Baseball’s Historic Role in U.S. Foreign Policy

Robert Elias, Ph.D., Author; Professor of Politics, University of San Francisco

Though baseball has been widely recognized as a barometer of U.S. society, less examined has been its long-standing role in U.S. military, diplomatic and globalization policies, and in promoting the American way abroad. Elias reveals a colorful and often startling cast of characters, illustrated by dramatic slides, both from baseball and foreign policy. He tells how baseball has been compelling on and off the field.
