There have been silent revolutions transforming cricket in many directions, improving it in some ways and in others robbing it of some elements of its charm. In this panoramic collection of his writings, Australia's leading cricket writer ranges over 250 years of cricket history, picking out those events, characters and even objects that have mattered - sometimes far more than we know.
Silent Revolutions: Writings on Cricket History, by Gideon Haigh (Aurum, £. 9). Haigh's previous collection, Game for Anything, had much on corruption that should be required reading for anyone who hopes to get to the bottom of that scandal. This is lighter-hearted, on the whole; but there isn't a single article in here that isn't a joy to read. Sport and leisure books.
Silent Revolutions: Writings on Cricket History. Mr Haigh is a busy man; this is one of three cricket books he has released in the month of November. Silent Revolutions is the only one that features the writings of the author, but even this is a collection of previously published works. The articles are mainly drawn from his work for Cricinfo, The Wisden Cricketer, Wisden Asia and the Melbourne Age, so some readers may be familiar with some of the content.
