About the Author:

Historian, archivist, interviewer and writer, David Frith founded Wisden Cricket Monthly in 1979 and ran it for seventeen years. He is also a former editor of The Cricketer. His many books include a bestselling pictorial history of Ashes Tests (the first 1000-picture cricket book); The Trailblazers, a reconstruction of the first English tour of Australia (1861-62) and the thrilling 1894-95 series; Silence of the Heart, his acclaimed study of cricket suicides; The Fast Men, Caught England, Bowled Australia; Bodyline Autopsy, and biographies of such disparate cricketers as John Edrich and Jeff Thomson. He lives in Guildford, Surrey.

Review:

'A brilliant book...it goes a long way to being the definitive tome on the subject. Outstandingly researched and extremely well written.' -- David Llewellyn Independent 'In David Frith's Bodyline Autopsy, we relive the crisis of 1932-33 that almost split the Empire...the well-sketched heroes and villains stand out in Frith's history; who says cricket is for gentlemen?' The Times 'Frith's account is packed with fascinating detail and anecdote. His description of the Test matches could hardly be more gripping.' -- Leo McKinstry Sunday Telegraph

Book Description AURUM PRESS, United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. UK ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1932, England s cricket team, led by the haughty Douglas Jardine, had the fastest bowler in the world: Harold Larwood. Australia boasted the most prolific batsman the game had ever seen: the young Don Bradman. He had to be stopped. The leg-side bouncer onslaught inflicted by Larwood and Bill Voce, with a ring of fieldsmen waiting for catches, caused an outrage that reverberated to the back of the stands and into the highest levels of government. Bodyline, as this infamous technique came to be known, was repugnant to the majority of cricket-lovers. It was also potentially lethal - one bowl fracturing the skull of Australian wicketkeeper Bert Oldfield - and the technique was outlawed in 1934. After the death of Don Bradman in 2001, one of the most controversial events in cricketing history - the Bodyline technique - finally slid out of living memory. Over seventy years on, the 1932-33 Ashes series remains the most notorious in the history of Test cricket between Australia and England. David Frith s gripping narrative has been acclaimed as the definitive book on the whole saga: superbly researched and replete with anecdotes, Bodyline Autopsy is a masterly anatomy of one of the most remarkable sporting scandals.
