Inhaltsangabe: This anthology examines the fortunes of cricket in various colonies as the sport spread across the British Empire. It helps to explain why cricket was so successful, even in places like India, Pakistan and the West Indies where the Anglo-Saxon element remained in a small minority. It demonstrates, perhaps better than any other single work, how awesome was the power of cultural imperialism. Even when former subjects threw off the political yoke of the Europeans, they still adhered tenaciously to the sporting and recreational models that the imperialists had introduced.
