Beyond a boundary

Great claims have been made for [Beyond a Boundary] since its first appearance in 1963: that it is the greatest sports book ever written; that it brings the outsider a privileged insight into West Indian culture; that it is a severe examination of the colonial condition. All are true. Sunday Times [Beyond a Boundary] remains among the five best cricket books ever written, and anyone who has not encountered it should seize the chance now. Sunday Telegraph . . . not only the most finely crafted book on cricket ever written, it is also the most penetrating study of pre-Independence West Indian society. The Times . . . a complex interweaving of the history and development of West Indian cricket into the tapestry of West Indian politics and history. . . .A rich and rewarding mix, this was one of the first books to demonstrate how penetratingly good sports books can be.
