'If you are a specialist in sports law, or a lawyer who would love to get further involved in this increasingly complex field, you'll find much to interest you in this useful Handbook on the subject published recently by Edward Elgar. . . This is a thought provoking volume which offers much to learn from and enjoy. . . Anyone professionally involved with sport will value this book's contemporary and forward-looking approach to a topic which has now become a matter of global interest and concern.' -- Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, The Barrister Magazine
'Despite taking a wide variety of forms, sport is universal. Circumstances and events generating legal issues in sport are similarly universal, but sport operates under many legal systems worldwide. Fragmentation and inconsistency in legal outcomes often result. This innovative collection of essays by leading scholars of sports law addresses a gap in the literature. It advances understanding of how different legal systems respond to common issues and offers insights into the developing international system of sports law. Researchers will find this book of inescapable assistance and interest.' -- Hayden Opie, Melbourne Law School, Australia
'Nafziger and Ross have provided an enormously useful collection of incisive and integrating essays that cover the gamut of important issues in the emerging field of international sport law.' -- Andrew Zimbalist, Smith College, US
