Women's Cricket and Global Processes considers the emergence and growth of women's cricket around the world, aiming to provide a sociological analysis of how the women's game has developed in relation to the men's. It considers how and why men's and women's cricket have merged and how this influences the habitus of those involved in the game. Focusing on power relations between men's and women's cricket this book seeks to explain how and why the women's game has developed the way it has, and how power relations between men's and women's cricket continue to shape the development of the women's game as well as influencing the social identities of those that play the global game. This book will appeal to scholars and students of Sociology, Sport, and Gender and all those interested in the growth of women's sport"--"@en ;
