Dear CARIBBEAN-STUDIES Subscribers,

We would like to announce a new publication from Duke University Press, which we hope will be of interest.

[CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75]Marxism, Colonialism, and Cricket
C. L. R. James's Beyond a Boundary
Edited by David Featherstone, Christopher Gair, Christian Høgsbjerg & Andrew Smith


http://www.combinedacademic.co.uk/marxism-colonialism-and-cricket

“Few books of the twentieth century inhabit the core of life and carry such human insight as C. L. R. James's Beyond a Boundary, certainly not with sport as their subject. Marxism, Colonialism and Cricket brings together a series of new reflective essays on James's epochal book by writers of the Caribbean, America, and the United Kingdom—from England's greatest cricket captain to a cricket-loving vice-chancellor at the University of the West Indies.”—Chris Searle, author of Pitch of Life: Writings on Cricket
“Marxism, Colonialism, and Cricket will quickly become required reading for those not just interested in the intellectual and political life of C. L. R. James but, as importantly, in how we make sense of the contested political terrain of popular culture and sports in the twenty-first century.”— Ben Carrington, author of Race, Sport, and Politics: The Sporting Black Diaspora
Widely regarded as one of the most important and influential sports books of all time, C. L. R. James's Beyond a Boundary is—among other things—a pioneering study of popular culture, an analysis of resistance to empire and racism, and a personal reflection on the history of colonialism and its effects in the Caribbean. More than fifty years after the publication of James's classic text, the contributors to Marxism, Colonialism, and Cricket investigate Beyond a Boundary's production and reception and its implication for debates about sports, gender, aesthetics, race, popular culture, politics, imperialism, and English and Caribbean identity. Including a previously unseen first draft of Beyond a Boundary's conclusion alongside contributions from James's key collaborator Selma James and from Michael Brearley, former captain of the English Test cricket team, Marxism, Colonialism, and Cricket provides a thorough and nuanced examination of James's groundbreaking work and its lasting impact.
David Featherstone is Senior Lecturer in Human Geography at the University of Glasgow.
Christopher Gair is Senior Lecturer in English Literature at the University of Glasgow.
Christian Høgsbjerg is Lecturer in Critical History and Politics at the University of Brighton.
Andrew Smith is Reader in Sociology at the University of Glasgow.
With all best wishes,
