One Goal by Amy Bass
ONE GOAL

ISBN-13-978-0316511018

In the tradition of Friday Night Lights, ONE GOAL tells the inspiring story of the soccer team in a town bristling with racial tension that united Somali refugees and multi-generation Mainers in their quest for state--and ultimately national--glory.  Taking readers behind the tumult of this controversial team--and onto the pitch where the teammates vied to become state champions and achieved a vital sense of understanding--ONE GOAL is a timely story about overcoming the prejudices that divide us.

                         "Deftly reported and unflinchingly told." -- S.L. Price, SI Senior Writer

Not the Triumph but the Struggle by Amy Bass
Not the Triumph but the Struggle

ISBN-13-978-0816639458

"Amy Bass's powerful and nuanced account of the Olympic Project for Human Rights gives us the story behind this picture-a story that will change our conception of the history of sport and racial politics." -Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams

"Beautifully written, as well as appropriately complex and wide-ranging. As much as sports might appear to be a straight-ahead business, where the 'best' might be rightly rewarded, Bass deftly reveals the difficulties of maintaining a sense of self, collective consciousness, and political urgency." -Philadelphia City Paper

Those About Him Remained Silent

ISBN-13-978-0816644964

Honorable Mention from the National Council on Public History

"Amy Bass’s excellent history of ‘un-American activities’ in a pleasant New England town is another cautionary illustration of the banality of evil: in this case, the long, willful distortion of the progressive legacy of their greatest native son." —David Levering Lewis, Pulitzer Prize winner for W. E. B. Du Bois:

"As one who also once searched for remembrance of Du Bois in Great Barrington nearly in vain, I find this book a bracing revelation. This is a startling and important tale of social denial, of erased historical memory, and a hidden past now coming to light." —David W. Blight, author of Race and Reunion
