Reprint. Originally published: London: Allen & Unwin, 1984.

A great depression, worsening Anglo-Australian relations, the declining British Empire and the challenge from an Australia striving to find a national identity are the context which explain bodyline and its repercussions.

Bodyline was a watershed in the history of cricket and politics were publicly seen as part of sport.

This book offers a radical reappraisal of bodyline which challenges the official interpretations of the events, and places them in a unique social and political context. .
