The book that set the standard for sports textbooks has been extensively revised and updated for its new eighth edition. Among the many new topical additions are elite child athletics, gambling in college sports, performance enhancement drugs, sport and nationalism after 9/11, the Beijing Olympics, Nike and other corporations, the power of media in sport, and more on minorities and on disabilities in sport.
The authors are experiences text authors as well as former athletes and coaches. They bring a unique perspective to topics that are current and much on the minds of students and professors competing in an ever more challenging sport environment--one beset by scandal, pressed for revenue production, and riddled with inequality.
