Thought-provoking and unique. Sport...uncovered. Sports figures, events and organisations affect our society in vast, varied and sometimes unexpected ways and Sport and Public Policy tackles some of the most compelling connections between the sports world and public policy. It begins by examining issues related to professional sports. It looks at the unique nature of American sports leagues, the decisions and conflicts involved in the organisation of sports leagues and events, public investment in sports facilities, the cartel power of American sports leagues, and the contrasting structures that govern international sports like soccer. "Sport and Public Policy" also explores amateur sports and public health. It challenges the reader to think globally through a discussion of how sports affect and are affected by international relations, how a changing world economy is affecting the Olympic games, Major League Baseball's efforts at global expansion, and the effects of global consumer marketing efforts.
