Recenzii

This is a highly informative text that links the key concepts in sport management to broader issues for research, in particular, the role of past research in informing current research agendas. In presenting a reference guide that draws on Organizational Theory to formulate research questions, Terri Byers, Trevor Slack and Milena Parent offer students a highly original text for understanding both the theory and the practice of the management of sport, the sports industry and broader concerns for management, sports law, and media/broadcasting.

Byers, Slack, and Parent's Key Concepts in Sports Management is a must have introductory reference guide for graduate and undergraduate sport management students and a highly suggested read for established and developing sport management professors, researchers, and practitioners. Their book - which is underpinned with a strong organizational theory foundation and sustained with an interweaving of conceptual issues and practical applications - is highly relevant for use in endeavors associated with pedagogical, scholarly, and practical aspects of our field. While the authors use organizational theory as the basis to explain various issues and concepts, the book has a strong connection to myriad disciplines and segments - ranging from sport law and sport marketing to sport finance and sport media - affiliated with the management of sport. In addition to the authors' detailed examination and application of core concepts and affiliated research, readers will find highly beneficial Byers, Slack, and Parent's suggestions for future research as well as additional scholarly reading material related to the various interrelated concepts and issues examined in their guide.

Key Concepts in Sport Management is an accessible and different guide for students and practitioners alike, on relevant concepts from organisational theory and beyond. It is comprehensive, with 46 chapters, each between 1000 and 2000 words long, on different concepts. Furthermore, it shows the interrelationships between these concepts and it has over 100 pages of relevant references. I'm sure that it will become a standard reference text for sports management. alike'
