Widely regarded as a cricketing masterpiece, Beyond a Boundary is less a sports book, more a cultural guide with a bit of autobiography thrown in for good measure. A highly regarded historian, novelist, cultural commentator and political activist, C L R Jones uses all his skills to craft a book that provides a new insight into his life and his sporting passion. First published in 1963, more than four decades later it remains a must-read for sports fans with an interest in the issues of the outside world.
Beyond a Boundary was ranked in third place among the top 50 sports books of all time according to a poll of readers conducted by Observer Sports Monthly and is widely regarded as one of the best books ever written about cricket. Some four decades after it was first published, Beyond A Boundary remains as topical today as it was back in the 1960s. As such, it is a great read for cricket fans who want to find out more about the game's cultural roots.
