Foreword by André Odendaal, CEO of Western Province Cricket Association and Honorary Professor in History and Heritage Studies at the University of the Western Cape.

"Dean Allen's book is an example of original biographical history at its best. He has used extensive archival material from South Africa and the UK - some of which he accessed for the very first time - in order to explore the important themes of sport, politics, and power during a key period of South African and British Imperial history. He cleverly relates James Logan's love of cricket and his personal career to the wider processes of colonialism." Jennifer Hargreaves, Consultant and Visiting Professor of Sports Sociology, University of Brighton

"It is more than just a sports history and also more than just a political history. Its strength is in the way it melds the two to provide new perspective on a turbulent South African past." Albert Grundlingh, Chair of History Department, Stellenbosch University
