Sport Management: An Exploration of the Field and Its Value offers students an approachable yet substantive look at why sport (and the management of sport) holds an essential place in society through the lenses of some of the most influential sport management scholars.

Unlike many introductory sport management textbooks on the market that are structured to provide brief overviews of the functional areas of sport management, this text emphasizes the various legitimations for the role of sport in society and then uses that understanding as a mechanism to discuss related management implications.

The chapters cover the primary legitimations for sport, including health, socialization, economic development, community development, national pride, history, and social politics.
