         AND THE LAW," by Rutgers Law School and MLB salary
         arbitrator ROGER ABRAMS, is reviewed by Smith College
         economics professor Andrew Zimbalist in the WASHINGTON POST. 
         Zimbalist writes that Abrams "does not always succeed in
         presenting a balanced or penetrating account of his
         subject," and that "overall it is Abram's failure to draw
         out the many implications of antitrust law and baseball's
         exemption that is the Achilles' heel of the book"
         (WASHINGTON POST, 6/18)...."WHO WORKS IN NASCAR," published
         by WHO WORKS SPORTS GUIDES, is available for $39.50, plus $6
         handling, through NC-based Eclipsed Management (NASCAR).
