About this Item

256 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.The second of two volumes providing an analysis of the ebb and flow of West Indies cricket fortunes, this volume covers the third rising of West Indies cricket. As the sport becomes more commercialized, large amounts of money have established sponsorship and support systems to give cricketers around the world every possible advantage. The book assesses what impact the globalization of cricket has had on the cricketers of the Caribbean. It also describes the emergence of what it argues is a debilitating sub-nationalism in the West Indies, and the effect this has had on the game, and the prospect for integrating West Indian nationhood in the 21st century.
