The winner of the Society for American Baseball Research’s Seymour Medal as the best book of 1998, this newly released edition of A Baseball Dynasty: Charlie Finley’s Swingin’ A’s (originally titled Baseball’s Last Dynasty) contains added interviews with stars Joe Rudi, Gene Tenace, Jim “Mudcat” Grant, and John “Blue Moon” Odom.  Other new material includes updated and expanded accounts from the raucous 1972 regular season and World Series, year-by-year statistical summaries of Oakland’s dynastic run, and news-making headlines from the turbulent 1970s.  Here is the full and complete story of the team known as the “Mustache Gang.”

“The author has brought research that enlivens almost every page, interviewing many of the team’s central figures to supplement library sources and an almost week-by-week account of the A’s long run.”
— Publishers Weekly

“Baseball fans will enjoy the legendary antics of an iconoclastic owner and his collection of talented, outrageous personalities.”
— Booklist
