Review

'Over 800 pages on the economics of sport. What a feast! What a treat! The editors have done a wonderful job both in terms of breadth - from David Beckham to child labour in Pakistan - and depth, tournaments and luxury taxes for example... The 86 chapters are uniformly of a very high standard and illuminating. And there are real gems in some of the contributions.'- British Journal on the Economics of Sport'This very interesting and comprehensive book achieves its objective, namely to present an overview of research in sports economics at an introductory level... [The editors] have produced an excellent reference book that belongs in all academic institutions' libraries. It provides extensive introduction to the growing body of literature in the rising field of economics of sport. The book's relevant monographs should be read by institutions, cities and countries prior to their committing major resources towards sports facilities or a sporting event.'- James Angresano, Journal of Sports Economics'One could think of this book as the sports-and-economics counterpart to Joy of Cooking, because it will satisfy the needs of those with a keen interest in such subjects as the demand for sport by spectators and the media... this encyclopedic volume is as close as anyone is likely to come in the foreseeable future to a solid, well-written reference work on the subject. Offering plenty of bibliographic references, it is an authoritative starting point for any serious discussion of a wide variety of topics at the intersection of economics and the sporting world. Highly recommended. All readers; all levels.'- A.R. Sanderson, Choice'The knowledge base represented by this volume is impressive. The collection of papers also admirably demonstrates the power of economic analysis to provide insights to the workings of the world in which we live.'- Economic Outlook and Business Review '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.' --Paul Staudohar, former President of the International Association of Sports Economics (1992-2002), and co-founder of the Journal of Sports Economics
