Overview:The Bodyline Hypocrisy: Conversations with Harold Larwood - This fresh analysis of the England - Australia 'Bodyline Controversy' of 1932-33 uncovers hypocrisy on both sides of the furore, drawing on exclusive interviews with English 'villain of the piece' (and Australian emigre) Harold Larwood. At the time, Australia was a young, isolated country where sport was a religion, winning essential, and the media prone to distortion. In England, the MCC was pressurised by a British government fearing trade repercussions, leaving Harold Larwood and Douglas Jardine to be hung out to dry on a clothes-line of political expediency. The Bodyline Hypocrisy analyses the influence of Australian culture on events, and on exaggerations and distortions previously accepted as fact. It reveals that the MCC granted Honorary Membership to Larwood in 1949, influenced by its Australian president. And now even Ian Chappell has stated that Jardine's leg-theory tactic was simply playing Test cricket with whatever weapons were available. Times change and the truth emerges.
