This Handbook presents a comprehensive collection of essays by leading scholars and practitioners in the burgeoning field of international sports law. The authors address significant legal issues on two gradually converging tracks: the mainstream institutional framework of the law, primarily the International Olympic Committee, international sports federations, regional and national sports authority, and the Court of Arbitration for Sport; and the commercial sports industry. Topics include the institutional structure; fundamental issues, legal principles and decisions within those institutions; mediation, arbitration and litigation of disputes; doping, gambling and the expanding use of technology in competition; athlete eligibility requirements; discrimination; and protection of athletes. The book also covers a broad range of commercial issues related to competition law and labor markets; media, image, and intellectual property rights; event sponsorships; and players' agents. Comparative analyses of young sports models and practices in North America, Europe and elsewhere supplement the general theme of international sports law. This major collection of essays on some of the most controversial, cutting-edge issues in international sports law, will be a captivating read for academics and students of sports law, sports management, international law and comparative law, as well as practicing lawyers and players' agents. Senior executives and other professionals in the sports industry will also find much to interest them in this well-documented Handbook.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`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
