While sports are often deployed as metaphor for social phenomena, Shaun Scott goes a step further, demonstrating how sports are inextricably linked to our politics, culture, and social institutions. Examining 170 years of Seattle sports, this deeply-researched book helped me better understand the long tug-of-war between progressive and reactionary forces, which continue to shape our region today. Heartbreak City is destined to join the pantheon of must-read local histories. P.S. Bring back our Sonics. [Adrienne]
