Reviews
This up-to-date book provides an account of how the law influences the operation, administration, and playing of modern sports. Although the book focuses on legal doctrine, it has been written bearing in mind sports' historical, cultural, social, and economic context, including the drama and color of sports' major events and leading personalities. And although it is inevitably very much concerned with elite professional sports, it is not dominated by them, seeking to cover the widest possible range of sports, from professional to amateur. Initially, the book addresses practical issues, such as the structures of national and international sports, and examines the evolution of the body of law known as 'sports law.' Thereafter, three main themes are identified: regulatory, participatory, and financial aspects of modern sports.
