Library Journal Review

In each of his 27 chapters, attorney Fotiades introduces and summarizes the law on some aspect of watching, playing, or administering sports and provides real and hypothetical examples and, where applicable, court decision summaries. Sports fans will find this entertaining and informative; however, it has less reference or classroom value because no cases, statutes, or regulations are cited to facilitate further research. Further, Fotiades usually changes the names of litigants to protect their privacy, a practice which hardly seems necessary since some of the cases described have been highly publicized. Although George W. Schubert and others' Sports Law (West Pub., 1986) remains a better single-volume introductory overview, and texts including Annie Clement's Law in Sport and Physical Activity (Benchmark Pr., 1987) are better suited for classroom use, this is still recommended for public and general academic libraries.-- Merlin Whiteman, Indiana Univ.
