Product no.: HP046

Frank Birbalsingh

This essential book recalls the events, issues, attitudes and personalities that were central to the evolution of West Indian cricket. Historical reflection is combined with cricket reminiscence from the 1920s to the 1960s - the most critical years.

Four decades of West Indian cricket are vividly recreated and examined with loving care and accuracy.

Subject areas include: the Headley era; post-war years; Ram and Val; the West Indies under Gerry Alexander; the West Indies under Frank Worrell; the West Indies under Garfield Sobers; and comments on the writings of V.S. Naipaul, Edward Brathwaite and C.L.R. James.
