'Fire In Babylon' is the breathtaking story of how the West Indies triumphed over their colonial masters through the achievement of being one of the most gifted teams in sporting history.
In a turbulent era of apartheid in South Africa race riots in England and civil unrest in the Caribbean, the West Indian cricketers led by the enigmatic Viv Richards struck a defiant blow at the forces of white prejudice, worldwide.
Their undisputed skill, combined with a fearless spirit, allowed them to dominate the genteel game at the highest level, replaying it on their own terms. This is their story, told in their own words.
