Cricket and Contemporary British Society: Decline and Fall

Some brief overview of book

The state and status of cricket in British national life has always been a cultural bellwether and this has never been more true than today. Since England regained the Ashes in 2005, to a crescendo of popular interest and acclaim, cricket has been in notable decline, in terms of public awareness and participation. Based on extensive empirical research, this book investigates this decline and assesses the winners and losers, as well as neglected groups such as Afro-Caribbean and Asian communities.

It considers the international context and offers comparisons with other cricketing nations, offering a unique perspective on the cultural, social and political condition of modern Britain.
