A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

`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

`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

'The editors should be commended for taking on such a big task, and succeeding so well. This book should be in the library of every institution where students have to write a paper that may be related to sport, or on the shelf of any lecturer teaching economics or public finance who has even a remote interest in sport. The material is very accessible, and useful in many different settings.'
- Ruud H. Koning, Jahrbucher f. Nationalokonomie u. Statistik
