An updated and expanded edition of Rob Smyth's rollicking history of Anglo-Australian loathing on the cricket field, including three new pieces to cover the topsy-turvy Ashes series of 2015. Gentlemen and Sledgers charts the ebb and flow of Anglo-Australian cricketing fortunes across 131 years and 314 matches by telling the stories behind 100 memorable Ashes quotations. Examples of the dark art of sledging - and even the occasional considered cricketing judgement. Evoking memorable moments and matches as well as highs and lows in the careers of Australia and England's greatest players, Gentlemen and Sledgers is an informal, freewheeling, discursive and entertainingly opinionated history of the Ashes.

Richie Benaud, who died this year aged 84, was “perhaps the most influential cricketer and cricket personality since the Second World War" according to Gideon Haigh, the world's best cricket historian. He excelled as a batsman, legspin bowler, revolutionary captain – and most of all as a commentator in England and Australia for almost 50 years. He was universally loved for his authority, knowledge, dry wit and generosity of spirit. Benaud in Wisden records the highlights of an exceptional career both as a player and a journalist. There are edited reports on each of his 63 Test matches, including the legendary Tied Test of 1960-61 and the match at Old Trafford in 1961 when Benaud memorably stole the Ashes from England. “If one player, more than any other, has deserved the goodwill of cricket for lifting the game out of the doldrums, that man is Richard Benaud,” said Wisden in 1962. The book also includes a series of articles written by Benaud in the Wisden Almanack after his retirement, as well as features from Wisden Cricket Monthly, The Wisden Cricketer and Wisden Asia Cricket. Benaud's impact was so great, and so enduring, that the book will appeal to teenagers, nonagenarians and everybody in between. It is the definitive record of a unique career.

Sledging is the art of verbally intimidating a batsman so that he loses his concentration and gets himself out. It is also known as the art of initiating mental disintegration. The Sledger's Handbook is an absolutely hilarious romp through the history of the cricketing insult, from WG Grace to Shane Warne and his contemporaries. Who said cricket was a gentleman's game?

Peppered with bouncers, expletives, and even the odd diplomatic incident, this is a rip-roaring journey through over a century of Ashes history. For a list of every Ashes century and five-wicket haul, try Wisden, but if you want to know which England batsman was a martyr to syphilis and which Australian fast bowler reckoned the Queen had 'nice legs for an old Sheila', then read on... Stiff Upper Lips and Baggy Green Caps exposes the seamy side of Ashes cricket. It gives the inside story behind controversies from the Bodyline series of 1932-33 and the Lillee and Thomson blitzkrieg of 1974-75, right up to the unseemly modern spats that ensure that this biannual frenzy of backbiting, finger-pointing and dubious facial hair remains one of the great events of the sporting calendar.
