    Abstract: 本論文透過C.L.R.詹姆斯的作品‚《跨越界線》,探討板球如何做為一個英國文化的輸入,在大英帝國殖民的控制下對西印度群島的影響力。也就是說,板球如何做為一種運動而深入影響了西印度群島文化與生活的多種面向。





    From CLR James’ book, Beyond a Boundary, this research takes a look at the impact of a cricket, British cultural import, in the West Indies. In the clutches of colonialism under imperial Britain, this research takes into scrutiny of how the game of cricket permeated into various aspects of West Indian life and culture.
    Cricket culture in the West Indies is their national culture. Underlying this culture is an ideology engendered in its practice. Various interpretations of ideology and resistance are recounted in this research of cricket in the West Indies. These ideologies are also legacies carried through history by peoples who manage to express themselves through cricket.
    This study is divided into three chapters. Chapter One provides a brief account of the basic knowledge of cricket for the benefit of those unfamiliar with the game. It covers the basic rules of play, a general history of the game and a brief history of cricket in the West Indies.
    Chapter Two focuses on the power relations that govern the organization of cricket in the West Indies. This chapter attempts to reveal the class hostilities articulated through cricket as a medium of cultural expression.
    Chapter Three looks at the cultural clashes in cricket in resistance to dominant white culture. This chapter shows the triumph of this resistance brought on by disturbances by repressed crowds at a cricket game in Trinidad.
    To sum up, this research probes the validity of cricket, or any other sport, as a national culture of significant influence; the influence of proportions hefty enough to construct, not only a national culture, but ultimately a national identity.
