Book News Annotation:

Murray (history, U. of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, emeritus) and Merrett (U. of KwaZulu-Natal, Pietermaritzburg) trace the manifestation and consequences of South Africa's racism in the activities of its state cricket team, the Springboks. Focusing on the apartheid era, the authors relate the events and political machinations that led to South Africa's cricket isolation and its eventual return to the international arena.
