A & C Black Ltd
Chapter by Mihir Bose – ‘Politics, economics and cricket’
For 141 years Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack has collected and collated what happens in top-class cricket, making Wisden the most famous name in sports publishing. Its pages record the development of a game and reflect social changes in the world beyond the game’s boundaries. Both volumes of A Wisden Collection provide a taste of Wisden down the years, picking out the highlights and the heroes who have made cricket headlines. Jonathan Rice in Wisden Cricketer described the first collection edited by Graeme Wright as ‘an unputdownable treasure-trove of all that’s quirky, informative and fascinating about Wisden’s view of cricket’. He went on to become the editor for Volume Two, ensuring it will be just as appealing to all cricket fans.
