Cricket and the Law







David Fraser
Football may be the people’s game, but the quintessentially English game of cricket has a
firm place within the public’s affection with many cricketing concepts escaping the
confines of the game to carry far broader social meanings.
Cricket and the Law charts the inter-relationship between cricket—the law of the
game, and legal theory—the law of our lives. Fraser draws fascinating connections and
commonalities between these two seemingly disparate, complex sets of conventions.
This engaging study will be enjoyed by lawyers and students of law, sport, sociology
and cultural studies, as well as cricket lovers everywhere.
David Fraser is Professor of Law and Social Theory at the School of Law, Nottingham
University, UK.
