`The worldwide growth in sports participation, attendance and broadcasting has spawned a lively interest in economic analysis of sporting activities. The Handbook on the Economics of Sport is an original reference work by a stellar group of 65 experts whose monographs cover virtually all the significant aspects of the field. It is unique and valuable because of its global perspective, with contributors from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and the US. Prominent editors Wladimir Andreff and Stefan Szymanski recognize the importance of intellectual rigour in the essays. There is a nice blend of theory, practice and econometrics, with emphasis on empirical results, which should appeal to a broad spectrum of readers. The book's thoughtful organization, comprehensive coverage and authoritative analysis make it an indispensable resource for sports scholars and practitioners. Publisher Edward Elgar has distinguished itself by providing first-rate books on sports economics and is the premier literary source on this important new branch of social science.'
