Sample text

Jackson, offers us a legal reading of a social text, cricket. He urges up, calls upon, invokes images and meanings which are meant to confirm or instil in us, the readers, a vision or interpretation of the text which leaves us with an unmistakable, incontrovertible meaning.

An umpire needs to cope not only with the clinical application of the Laws but with the attitudes of the players, which nowadays are much more aggressive than in the past. He must be firm in control of the game, without being pedantic or officious. He must not let his absolute impartiality be affected by the behaviour of the players, or by the state of the game.
