Synopsis In this, his second book on bowls, Gordon Allan looks back on the last twenty years of the twentieth century, which he believes to have been the most eventful in the long history of the game. The advent of professionalism, television exposure, five-figure prize money, the influx of younger players - these, among many other changes, constitute a revolution in the sedate sport that W G Grace knew.
