Faithful to Fenway : believing in Boston, baseball, and America's most beloved ballpark by Michael Ian Borer( Book )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 253 libraries worldwide
Read the review at MLB.com. The Green Monster. Pesky's Pole. The Lone Red Seat. Yawkey Way. To baseball fans this list of bizarre phrases evokes only one place: Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. Built in 1912, Fenway Park is Americas oldest major league ballpark still in use.

Urban people and places : the sociology of cities, suburbs, and towns by Daniel J Monti( Book )
4 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide

Whereas most texts focus on the socio-economic causes of urbanization, this text analyses the cultural component: how the physical construction of places is, in part, a product of cultural beliefs, ideas, and practices and also how the culture of those who live, work, and play in various places is shaped, structured, and controlled by the built environment. Inasmuch as the primary focus will be on the United States, global discussion is composed with an eye toward showing how U.S. cities, suburbs, and towns are different and alike from their counterparts in Africa, Asia, and Central and South America
