Golenbock, coauthor of The Bronx Zoo and Balls, argues that ""dem Bums'' gave Brooklyn an identity and cohesion that disappeared when the team moved West in 1957. Featuring extensive interviews with Dodger players, fans, newspapermen and company executives, Golenbock concentrates on the teams's glory years, from 1941 until the move. PW called Bums ``a top-drawer effort.'' (March)
