The early chapters provide an overview of sports law in general terms and explore its impact on race, politics, religion, and everyday affairs. Later chapters address hot button issues such as gender equity, drug testing, and discrimination.Written from a sport management perspective, rather than from a lawyerrs"s, this text covers all the major areas presented in sports law today including: cases relating to torts, contracts, intellectual property, and agents.
