Cricket, law and the meaning of life ... In a readable, informed and absorbing discussion of cricket's defining controversies - bodyline, chucking, ball-tampering, sledging, walking and the use of technology, among many others - David Fraser explores the ambiguities of law and social order in cricket.

"Cricket and the Law" charts the interrelationship between cricket and legal theory - between the law of the game and the law of our lives - and demonstrates how cricket's cultural conventions can escape the confines of the game to carry far broader social meanings. This engaging study will be enjoyed by lawyers, students of culture and cricket lovers everywhere.
