Beyond A Boundary by C. L. R. James

"Beyond a Boundary" blends personal memoir, social history, and sports commentary to explore the complexities of colonialism, race, and class through the lens of cricket. The author, a Trinidadian historian and political activist, examines the role of cricket in the British West Indies, using the game as a lens to scrutinize and critique colonialist attitudes and racial stereotypes. Through his vivid narratives and character studies of prominent cricketers, he argues that cricket is deeply intertwined with cultural identity and the struggle for independence, making a compelling case for the sport's significance beyond just a game, but as an instrument of social justice and a vehicle for personal and collective empowerment.
