This book provides the first dedicated introduction to the cultural writings and analyses of the radical West Indian thinker C.L.R. James. It lays out James' account of the way in which games, books, music and film become a part of the politics and history of popular struggles.

'In this welcome book Andrew Smith provides a holistic approach to understanding C.L.R. James, one that links his sports and cultural commentary succinctly and successfully with his broader ideological and intellectual agendas.Smith raises the understanding of James to a new level, and allows for more insightful application of the Jamesian ideas to all areas of contemporary cultural analysis.' - Professor Brian Stoddart, Formerly Vice Chancellor, La Trobe University Australia 'Smith's work achieves its admirable aim of providing 'a clear account of James's approach to the various practices and products of human creativity', and so will doubtless be appreciated by both those new to James and 'James-scholars' alike.' - Interventions: International Journal of Postcolonial Studies
