Cricket and England : a cultural and social history of the inter-war years by Jack Williams( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the 1920s and 1930s, cricket had a vital role in how the English imagined themselves and their social world. Assumptions attached to the high level of sportsmanship within cricket and the associations of cricket with the Church, respect for tradition, the Empire, the public schools and reverence for pastoralism meant that cricket was represented as expressing a distinctively English form of moral worth." "The structures of authority in cricket indicate much about attitudes underlying the exercise of power. The images of cricket and how far the world of cricket conformed to them are essential for understanding English culture and society between the wars."--Jacket
