Beyond a Boundary

by C L R James
£8.99   paperback  Vintage (2005)

Beyond a Boundary by C L R James C L R James, one of the foremost thinkers of the twentieth century, was devoted to the game of cricket.
 
In this classic summation of half a lifetime spent playing, watching and writing about the sport, he recounts the story of his overriding passion and tells us of the players whom he knew and loved, exploring the game's psychology and aesthetics, and the issues of class, race and politics that surround it.
 
Part memoir of a West Indian boyhood, part passionate celebration and defence of cricket as an art form, part indictment of colonialism, Beyond a Boundary addresses not just a sport but a whole culture, to ask the question, 'What do they know of cricket who only cricket know?'
 
Beyond a Boundary reached the No. 3 in the Observer Sport Monthly's poll of the best fifty sports books of all time.
