  • This book provides the first dedicated introduction to the cultural writings and analyses of the radical West Indian thinker C.L.R. James. It lays out James' account of the way in which games, books, music and film become a part of the politics and history of popular struggles. -- The West Indian intellectual and activist C.L.R James is increasingly recognized as one of the twentieth-century's most original and important voices. Alongside his many pioneering historical and political interventions, James was a penetrating commentator on cultural matters, writing with flair and insight about a vast range of topics from Shakespeare to Joe Louis, calypso to Herman Melville, Jackson Pollock to Greek tragedy. This book provides the first, full-length study of this aspect of James' work. Written in a lively, accessible style, it draws out the central - and often provocative- claims of his cultural analyses, and places these in their historical and political context, arguing that James should be considered key reading for anyone interested in making sense of contemporary culture and its political ramifications. 
  • 'In this welcome book Andrew Smith provides a holistic approach to understanding C.L.R. James, one that links his sports and cultural commentary succinctly and successfully with his broader ideological and intellectual agendas. Smith raises the understanding of James to a new level, and allows for more insightful application of the Jamesian ideas to all areas of contemporary cultural analysis.' - Professor Brian Stoddart.
