International Perspectives on the Management of Sport

Change will be incremental, beginning with one or two values and beliefs, and building further as associated behaviors become the norm. The process requires dedication and patience, but it has promise as a long-term solution.

Sport has come to have an increasingly large impact on daily life and commerce across the globe. From mega-events, such as the World Cup or Super Bowl, to the early socialization of children into sport, the study of sport and society has developed as a distinctly wide-ranging scholarly enterprise, centered in sociology, sport studies, and cultural, media, and gender studies. In The Oxford Handbook of Sport and Society, Lawrence Wenner brings together contributions from the world's leading scholars on sport and society to create the premier comprehensive and interdisciplinary reference for scholars and students looking to understand key areas of inquiry about the role and impacts of sport in contemporary culture. The Handbook offers penetrating analyses of the key ways that today's outsized sport is integrated into the lives of both athletes and fans and increasingly shapes the social fabric and cultural logics across the world. Featuring 85 leading international scholars, the volume is organized into six sections: society and values, enterprise and capital, participation and cultures, lifespan and careers, inclusion and exclusion, and spectator engagement and media. To aid comprehension and comparison, each chapter opens with a brief introduction to the area of research and features a common organizational scheme with three main sections of key issues, approaches, and debates to guide scholars and students to what is currently most important in the study of each area. Written at an accessible level and offering rich resources to further study each topic, this handbook is an essential resource for scholars and students as well as general readers who wish to understand the growing social, cultural, political, and economic influences of sport in society and our everyday lives.

A dual citizen of Canada and the United States, Dr. Zeigler has taught, coached, researched, and administered programs at four universities (Western Ontario [twice]; Illinois, UIUC; Michigan, Ann Arbor; and Yale). He has published 55 books and 432 articles. The top six awards in his field in North America have been bestowed on him. He has received three honorary doctorates and is listed in Who's Who in Canada, Who's Who in America, and Who's Who in the World. In this monograph, Dr. Zeigler draws on his seventy years of experience with the field of sport and physical activity education (including athletics) to offer some advice to the counselor and young person either considering entry or just starting out as a young professional. After discussing the decision to enter the field, he explains the five stages of philosophical development that the individual might experience in the course of a career in the field. Initially, he explains the need for self-evaluation with the introduction of a self-evaluation checklist for the prospective teacher to complete (e.g., educational aims and objectives, the educative process, ethics). This is followed by a self-evaluation questionnaire concerning the person's sociopolitical beliefs (e.g., freedom of speech and press, environmental crisis, war and peace). Next the teacher/coach is introduced to decision making in sport and physical activity education through the introduction of a case method technique where detailed analysis might occur (including the possibility of an ethical dimension when needed). The subject of administrator evaluation by faculty members is presented next through use of an appraisal guide. This is followed by an explanation of program assessment through the introduction of strategic market planning. Finally, the professional person is offered a test for self-evaluation of his or her RQ, or recreation quotient. All in all, these several self-testing, evaluative devices and further discussion could be most helpful to the young professional entering the field of sport and physical activity in the twenty-first century.

Bringing together leading scholars in the fields of Religion and Sport, this book examines the prophetic dimension of sport, to arrive at a better understanding of the nature of sports in the United States. By detailing and analyzing particular sports, a portrait of sport as an important space for social and political critique emerges. Sport is indisputably an important cultural phenomenon in the United States. Each year millions attend sporting events, track the statistics and lives of sports stars, collect memorabilia, engage in fantasy sports, and play various sporting games. But increasingly, sport is also a space for public articulations regarding social and political issues within the United States. What are we to make of these particular articulations? What do they tell us about the nature of sport in the United States? How are these social and political critiques formed? Why do sporting voices seem to carry more weight at this moment in history? Ideally suited for use in undergraduate and graduate courses, this book offers a new way of thinking about the connection between sport and religion in a secularizing society. By analyzing various sports and particular historical moments, the chapters supply a unique example of the relevance of sport as it pertains to social and political critique.

Fair Play in Sport presents a critical re-working of the classic ideal of fair play and explores its practical consequences for competitive sport. By linking general moral principles and practical cases, the book develops a contemporary theory of fair play. The book examines many of the key issues in the ethics of sport, including: * fairness and justice in sport * moral and immoral interpretation of 'athletic performance' * what makes a 'good competition' * the key values of competitive sport. The notion of fair play is integral to sport as we know and experience it, and is commonly seen as a necessary ethos if competitive sport is to survive and flourish. Fair Play in Sport provides an invaluable guide to the subject for all those with an interest in ethics and the philosophy of sport.

This book considers the role of instrumentality in sport and its influence on the athlete. Instrumentality is defined as a means-ends relationship, and it is discussed from the perspective of the logic of sport. The author researches two levels of instrumentality in sport – extrinsic and intrinsic instrumentality – and introduces and describes two kinds of values with respect to the two kinds of instrumentality: the extrinsic values of sport and the intrinsic values of sport. The book discusses a wide range of problems arising from the instrumental nature of sport, and their effect upon intrinsic values and the human being.
