Inside Out

Writings On Australian Cricket Culture

Gideon Haigh
Gideon Haigh, lauded by the Guardian as 'the best cricket writer in the world', turns his subject Inside Out.

In Gideon Haigh's latest book, one of cricket's finest writers turns his subject Inside Out, examining those aspects of cricket that distinguish it from other games, from the centenary of Sir Donald Bradman and the cult of the baggy green cap to the threat and promise of the Twenty20 revolution.

This is cricket not only as it is played, but as it is seen, run, commercialised, codified, promoted, politicised and also written about by others, with a detailed introduction to the distinguished literary traditions of which Gideon Haigh now forms part.
