Editorial Reviews


"When compared with the first edition (2005), the second edition of this primer reflects five years of changes in the world of sports. Names change and leagues change, sure, but more to the point--and covered here--are changes related to economics, labor, the law (e.g., property copyright cases as electronic media link the world ever closer), and so on. All these are now required reporting for news organizations."Recommended in CHOICE, August 2011, J. Marren, Buffalo State College, USA
