In baseball and beyond, 1997 has been the year of Jackie Robinson, the 50th anniversary of his obliteration of the games color line, and a time to reflect on a marvelous man whose heroism and decency cut far beyond the foul lines. Arnold Rampersad,MoreIn baseball and beyond, 1997 has been the year of Jackie Robinson, the 50th anniversary of his obliteration of the games color line, and a time to reflect on a marvelous man whose heroism and decency cut far beyond the foul lines.

Arnold Rampersad, a Princeton professor whos edited the poetry of Langston Hughes and the essays of Richard Wright, and collaborated with tennis great Arthur Ashe on his powerful memoir Days of Grace, steps up to the plate here with the first truly comprehensive Robinson biography. Its an important accomplishment, ripe with historical and social insight without losing sight of the human being at its core. Thoroughly researched--Rachel Robinson gave the author access to her husbands personal papers--and filled with fascinating new detail, the book, like its subject, consistently takes the extra base, thrilling with its overall skill, depth, and perspective.
