Historians and cricket-a miscellany (3)

Scraping the barrel by mentioning CLR James in a minute! Not intended as a disrespectful comment on the great man's historical skills (though I would be lying if I pretended to have read the Black Jacobins) but pretty feebly obvious stuff on my part.

Norman Davies does go on about the game at some length in the Isles. I like the Isles but James Campbell ripped the Dark Ages bits apart in an essay- almost as comprehensively as he used to rip my undergraduate essays apart.
