The Development of West Indies Cricket - Vol. 2

Synopsis

This volume covers the "third rising" of West Indies cricket. As the sport becomes ever more commercialized, large amounts of money have established sponsorship and support systems to give cricketers around the world every possible advantage. Beckles assesses what impact the globalization of cricket has had on the cricketers of the Caribbean. He also describes the emergence of what he 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 twenty-first century.
