Product description


It is an inspirational story and one which never fails to move this reader (Michael Parkinson, DAILY TELEGRAPH)

Oborne tells this remarkable story with the tautness of a thriller and the focus of a political tract. If you are at all interested in either cricket or humanity, I guarantee that you will read his book at one sitting. (Peter Wilby, NEW STATESMAN)

It is a masterpiece of research and reconstruction of the most significant sporting uprising of our times (DAILY MAIL)

As this stunning book makes very clear, principled people acting together can sniff out the essential truth and make the difference. Read it and risk being inspired to do the same. (IRELAND TRIBUNE)

Book Description

* Controversial and revelatory biography of the South African-born cricketer who played for England and was banned from touring his native country
