Review by Library Journal (2011-04-01)

The Oakland Raiders are one of a handful of pro football teams with a truly national fan base, with supporters who follow the team no matter how it performs. From aggressive owner Al Davis to flamboyant coach John Madden to swaggering players known as Snake, the Mad Bomber, Kick 'Em in the Head Ted, and Dr. Death, Raider history is rich in characters and successes. Shmelter covers the 50 years of the team in three sections.

The first recounts each game, week by week, in addition to annual rosters and statistics. The second presents the all-time roster, profiles every head coach, and details team records, draft picks, and awards. The final section profiles more than 50 of the most prominent players and offers information on executives, stadiums, uniforms, and cheerleaders.

Verdict: "Raider nation", coast to coast, carries a mystique of its own and will welcome this ultimate reference.
