Product Overview

This new edition includes expanded coverage of the practical managerial skills that students must develop if aiming for a career in the sport and leisure industry, from managing people and planning to marketing and entrepreneurship. It includes five completely new chapters reflecting important developments in contemporary sport and leisure: leisure in the home, financial management, quality and performance management, law and enterprise. The new edition retains the hallmark strengths of previous editions, including in-depth discussion of the social and cultural context of sport and leisure; full analysis of the public, private and voluntary sectors; and a review of key products and services, including sport, tourism, the arts, play and leisure in the natural environment.

Richly illustrated throughout with up-to-date evidence, data, case studies and international examples, each chapter also contains a range of useful pedagogical features, such as discussion questions, practical tasks and structured guides to further reading and resources. For the first time, a dedicated companion website offers additional teaching and learning resources for students and lecturers.

Peter Taylor is Professor of Sport Economics at the Sport Industry Research Centre, Sheffield Hallam University, UK. He has researched and written many publications on sport and leisure economics and management.
