Review
'In The Economics of Franchising, Blair and Lafontaine have provided an exceptionally comprehensive and cogent treatment of franchise law and economics. They have made complex economic analysis accessible and at the same time have revealed the hidden complexity behind some of the naïve misconceptions associated with franchising. But what I liked best was their ability to treat each topic with a blend of managerially relevant discussion and formal analysis. It is a book that will appeal to anyone with a business, legal or research interest in franchising.' Patrick Kaufmann, Boston University
'A book on franchising by the experts in this field is a welcome addition. It will be extremely valuable for both teachers and researchers.' Jeffrey M. Perloff, University of California, Berkeley

Red Sox Century: The Definitive History of the World's Most Storied Franchise
Glenn Stout
0618622268
October 2005
Hardcover

Book Review
Oh, to be a Red Sox fan. It is a mark of the singular angst that attends the territory that the four retired numbers--9 (Ted Williams), 4 (Joe Cronin), 1 (Bobby Doerr), and 8 (Carl Yastrzemski)--taunt the faithful every game from their perch on Fenway's right-field facade; they precisely correspond to the date--September 4, 1918--that the Sox won their last World Series title. Less than two years later, owner Harry Frazee would sell his star pitcher and outfielder, Babe Ruth, to the Yankees, and the curse of the Bambino would take hold of Boston hearts.

From Cy Young to Cy Young award winner Pedro Martinez, this is a franchise full of myth and history--the first to win a World Series and the last to cross the color line--and, contend authors Glenn Stout, the series editor of the annual Best American...
