The social, cultural and economic significance of sport has never been more evident than it is today. Adopting a critical management perspective, this book examines the most important themes and challenges in global sport management. From match-fixing, doping, bribery and corruption to corporate social responsibility, governance, and new media, it helps students, researchers and practitioners to understand the changing face of the global sport industry.

Written by leading international sport management experts, Critical Issues in Global Sport Management includes twenty chapters and real-life case studies from around the world. It examines contemporary governance and management issues as well as the ethical challenges faced by the global sport industry, including questions of integrity and accountability in recent drug scandals that have been widely reported and debated. This book deals with such questions and many more, highlighting the fact that the global sport system is in urgent need of new and innovative solutions to these ongoing problems.

Based on cutting-edge research from the US, UK, Australia, Europe and beyond, this book will add depth and currency to any course in sport management, sport business, sport development, or sport events.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book is organized into three areas, each serving as key focus area in both introductory sport-management courses and more advanced classes with a global focus. The structure of this book allows for easy integration into courses, whereas faculty can develop a syllabus with similar organization or merge it into an already established class ... The topics are timely and offer many opportunities for class discussion, small-group work, and student self-reflection." - Annemarie Farrell, Ithaca College, International Journal of Sport Communication
