"Written so that the sports fan (even if neither a lawyer nor a Yankees' fan) will delight in reading these accounts of how the worlds of baseball and law intersect, the book regales the reader with stories about the players, the team, and the history of baseball. Anecdotes, personal reflections, baseball facts, players' and owners' peccadilloes, and the legal issues that have impacted the Yankees are skillfully woven together. Baseball aficionados will enjoy the insights provided by the discussion of various legal concepts, and lawyer sports fans will appreciate the application of familiar legal principles on and off the baseball diamond."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

This Understanding treatise examines the multifaceted and complex law of private-sector Labor Law. Because Understanding Labor Law focuses on relations between management and labor in the private sector, it deals primarily with the National Labor Relations Act, as amended, and its interpretation and application by the federal courts and the National Labor Relations Board. The book is organized in a format that is consistent with the organization of most Labor Law courses. At the end of each chapter is a section titled "Chapter Highlights," summarizing some of the major doctrines discussed in the chapter.
