This textbook provides a comprehensive overview of the ways in which the law has impacted on how sport is played, administered and consumed. The author writes in a clear and engaging manner, tracing the origins and sources of this rapidly evolving subject and drawing examples from a wide range of professional and amateur sports to illustrate the important current debates and topics of interest. 

The book covers a wide-range of topics from participant and non-participant liability, fighting sports and their legality, and liability for stadium safety and disasters. The final section of the book takes in the very latest developments in mass-event sport and the growing but fundamental area of sports commercialisation.

This is the strongest sports law textbook I have seen – Richard Parrish, Edge Hill University, UK
Innovative, authoritative and accessible. Students will appreciate its depth of coverage and its clear layout, while those with a greater expertise can still learn from the lucid, thought-provoking exploration of the key issues. I've enjoyed reading it. – David McArdle, Stirling Law School, UK
An excellent comprehensive text covering relevant areas. The style is clear, interesting and readable and I think will be accessible to our non-law students as well as to those who are move familiar with the legal principles. – Fiona Buchanan, University of Cumbria, UK.
