View: 8546Die USA gelten als die führende Sportnation. Doch was wissen wir wirklich über den amerikanischen Sport, außer dass Baseball, American Football und Cheerleading aus diesem Land stammen? Was versteht man unter Begriffen wie Athletics, Intercollegiate Sports, Intramural Sports, Title IX, Physical Education, Super Bowl oder dem „Y“? Bisher gibt es nur wenig deutschsprachige Literatur über den amerikanischen Sport, seine Strukturen und Ausprägungsformen. Dieses Buch soll diese Lücke ein wenig schließen. Die einzelnen Beiträge, die von namhaften amerikanischen und deutschen Sportwissenschaftlerinnen und -wissenschaftlern verfasst sind, zeigen, dass der Sport in den USA eine ganz andere Struktur als der deutsche Sport mit seinem Vereinswesen aufweist.

View: 4620From disturbing new research on concussions to publicly-financed stadiums that benefit wealthy team owners, Ken Reed argues that much of our sports culture is broken, driven by win-at-all-costs and profit-at-all-costs values and policies. Reed outlines the most pressing challenges in sports today and offers practical solutions for change.

View: 8410The Oxford Handbook of American Sports Law takes the reader through the most important controversies and critical developments in law and U.S. sports. Over the course of 30 chapters, leading scholars explore this expanding and captivating area of law. The Handbook is the first book to gather dozens of perspectives on sports law controversies in the United States, and will be of interest to those who study and practice sports law, as well as journalists, broadcasters, and legally minded sports fans. The Oxford Handbook of American Sports Law incorporates analysis of key historical events in sports law-such as the rise of free agency in professional sports and the concept of "amateurism" for college athletes-and their broader context. Contemporary legal controversies in U.S. sports and their accompanying questions are also of central importance: In a sensible legal system, how would long-term neurological injuries from contact sports be addressed? How would the use of racially insensitive team names be resolved? How would a seemingly trivial dispute over air pressure in footballs be studied from the competing perspectives of players, teams, and leagues? The Oxford Handbook of American Sports Law weighs not just the facts, but how courts and lawmakers ought to consider the most important questions at stake. The essays in this volume also canvass the types of legal controversies in sports likely to surface in the future. This is particularly true of law and technology matters, including those related to broadcasting and streaming. Legal doctrine has been and will continue to be forced to adapt to these developments, and the Handbook both forecasts coming debates and outlines where the law may be headed.
