A Spirit of Dominance
Cricket And Nationalism In The West Indies
- Published: August 1998
The essays in this volume are the revised texts of an eight-part public lecture series on West Indian cricket history and culture organized by the Centre for Cricket Research at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill. An introductory essay by the editor, an interview with Viv Richards and two commentaries are also included. "Together they represent a tribute to Viv, as well as a substantial contribution to the historiography of West Indies cricket. While this material will serve students in the classroom well, we are sure that the public who participated in and enjoyed these lectures will wish to have this text in their possession for further engagement. It is therefore offered in this spirit of continuing dialogue."
