The Spirit of The Game book launch

You are here: Home / Blog / Sport / The Spirit of The Game book launch
There was a goodly turn out for Mihir Bose's launch party for his 25th book: The Spirit of The Game - How Sport Made the Modern World last night at Daunt's bookshop in Marylebone High Street. I spotted newly enobled Sir John Armitt, Tessa Jowell, Dick Caborn, Simon Lewis, Mark and Barry Davies, Mark Streatfeild, Tim Crow, Edward Griffiths and that arch book editor, Richard Heller.

I bought the book. In a previous life I commisisoned three of Mihir's books - one on Indian cricket - A Maidan View, another on English cricket - Cricket Voices and a biography of Michael Grade. Mihir says he has quoted me about my views on apartheid sport........ Colin Cowdrey said that it was worth building bridges to white only sport in South Africa in the 1960s and I replied "Well that depends on how long the bridge is...".
