"Contemporary sport is shaped by wider society. Anybody working in sport today must be aware of the broader social and cultural context within which sport operates if they are to be effective as managers or professionals. This is the first book written especially for sport management students to examine the wider social and cultural environment and to fully explain the key issues and practical implications for everyday sport management. Written by a team of leading international experts on sport management and sport in society, the book explores important topics such as: - Corporate social responsibility in sport - Race - Gender and sexuality - Sport and the media - Globalisation - Politics and policy - Social class, social capital and social exclusion Each issue is examined from the perspective of the manager or practitioner in sport, and each chapter includes a range of useful features, such as case-studies and self-test questions, to encourage the reader to think critically about the role of sport in society and about their own professional practice. This is the first sports management textbook to be based on the assumption that a more socially aware manager is a more effective manager and it should be essential reading for all sport management students"--

In Britain for Sale, award-winning financial journalist Alex Brummer investigates this question, explaining why British companies are so irresistible to overseas buyers and weighing up the true cost of these transactions.

Sporting Scots is the remarkable story of how the Scots brought sport to the world. Many of the world's greatest sports, now enjoyed by billions around the globe, either started in Scotland or had a Scottish influence that has made them what they are today. Scots not only invented golf, they also laid down the rules, developed the game and exported it to America and beyond. Scotland also hosted the world's first international football match, and Scots were instrumental in establishing the game as we know it today. Scotland can also lay claim to hosting the first rugby international, and the list of achievements in football, golf, rugby, horse racing, motor racing, cricket, baseball, tennis, boxing and many other sports is truly immense. Sporting Scots now celebrates this extraordinary sporting heritage and the men and women who took modern sport from Scotland to the world. And what a truly incredible story it is.

Since it’s first publication, Rugby’s Great Split has established itself as a classic in the field of sport history. Drawing on an unprecedented range of sources, this deeply researched and highly readable book traces the social, cultural and economic divisions that led, in 1895, to schism in the game of rugby and the creation of rugby league, the sport of England’s northern working class. Tony Collins’ analysis challenges many of the conventional assumptions about this key event in rugby history – about class conflict, amateurism in sport, the North-South divide, violence on the pitch, the development of mass spectator sport and the rise of football. This new edition is expanded to cover parallel events in Australia and New Zealand, and to address the key question of rugby league’s failure to establish itself in Wales. Rugby’s Great Split is a benchmark text in the history of rugby, and an absorbing case study of wider issues – issues of class, gender, regional and national identity, and the impact of the commercialization and recent professionalization of rugby league. This insightful text is for anyone interested in Britain’s social history or in the emergence of modern sport, it is vital reading.
