    Probing the legacy of one of the most influential sports books of all time

    Fifty-five years after the original publication of C. L. R. James’s influential work comes Marxism, Colonialism, and Cricket: C. L. R. James’s Beyond a Boundary, edited by David Featherstone, Christopher Gair, Christian Høgsbjerg & Andrew Smith (Duke University Press).

Russell Holden’s review highlights the good points as well as the drawbacks.
