Berkshire Encyclopedia of World Sport
The Berkshire Encyclopedia of World Sport tackles the whole world of sport, from major professional sports and sporting events to community and youth sports. It covers the business of sports—marketing, management, and ownership—as well as key social issues ranging from doping, racism, sexism, and youth participation, to performance enhancement and sports psychology. Coverage begins with the origins of sport among prehistoric hunters and gatherers and extends to the global sports industry of the twenty-first century.
