Cricket, Race and the 2007 World Cup, Hardback Book


Cricket has been subject to a number of changes over the last twenty years.

We can no longer talk of a sport particular to an out-dated English way of life.

Cricket has become global and has to exist within the global environment.

Primarily the world game has become commercialised. This collection of essays assesses the developments within major playing nations between the World Cups.

Do we now live in a world where commercialism is the primary factor in determining sports, or are wider historical prejudices still evident?

Seeking to answer these questions, Cricket, Race & the 2007 World Cup focuses on racial and ethnic tensions and their place in the new globalized, cricketing environment. This book was previously published as a special issue of Sport in Society.
