Sport tourism : interrelationships, impacts, and issues by Brent W Ritchie( )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 2,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the economic, social and environmental impacts concerned with the development and promotion of sport tourism. The book also outlines the major issues associated with the development of sport tourism globally, including the lack of research and coordination between industry and government. The book suggests the need for a more balanced analysis of the impacts and issues associated with future sport tourism development. A variety of specialist authors from different regions of the globe discuss these impacts and issues within 15 different chapters." "This book is suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate students studying sport tourism, events tourism, tourism management and sport studies. The book will also be useful for managers in public and private sector organisations associated with sport tourism."--Jacket

Managing the Paralympics( )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and German and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book critically examines the planning, management, and operations of the world's premier event for Para sport athletes. Noting a lack of research into how these games are planned and managed, the authors of this contributed volume discuss how the Paralympics are essentially different to the Olympics and what this means for their management. Managing the Paralympics explores how the organizers and connected stakeholders effectively organize and deliver the Paralympics, taking into account what has been learned from previous events. Including emergent models of best practice from event management, project management and sport management literature, the book gives an insight into the planning of one of the world's biggest sporting events that encompasses ten impairment types and multiple sport classes within sports."--Page 4 of cover
Global sport-for-development : critical perspectives by Nico Schulenkorf( )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In recent years, sport has been used as an instrument through which wider development objectives are pursued. This includes sport as a means to create awareness about the risks of HIV; sport as a vehicle to counter inter-group hostility; and sport as an environment where children can find respite in the wake of military conflict. The use of sport for the purposes of development is neither simple nor inherently successful. It is therefore regrettable that some of the agents and organisations involved in development programs provide idealistic accounts of their activities, thus suggesting that field work is unproblematic. By contrast, this book provides a critical approach to sport-for-development, acknowledging the potential of this growing field but emphasising challenges, problems and limitations - particularly if programs are not adequately planned, delivered or monitored. The book features both critical theory and reflective praxis, and will thus be useful to both academics and practitioners"--

Managing the Olympics( )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Olympics Games are the biggest and most significant mega-sport event in the world. Planning and then staging the Olympic Games is a highly complex task which is exasperated by the fact that the Games are continually moving and not held consecutively in the same city. This means that start-up knowledge is required for each Olympics. Given the massive scale, scope and complexity of the Games it is surprising that very little research has been published that explores how the event is managed and organised. While the Games themselves are held over two weeks, the planning and preparation from bid stage to completion can be more than a decade in the making. The express purpose of this volume is to critically examine the planning, management and operation of the Olympic Games as the world's premier mega-sport event. The authors analyse and discuss how Olympic organisers and related stakeholders might effectively manage and deliver the Games, taking into account what has been learned from previous Olympics as well as the emergence of models of best practice from the management, project management and sport management literature"--
Managing the football world cup by Stephen Frawley( )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Football World Cup is one of the biggest global sporting events. Along with the Summer Olympic Games, the Football World Cup can be truly called a mega-sport event. Both events attract billions of dollars in broadcast and sponsorship contracts and millions of spectators every four years when the events are staged. Nations and cities around the world desperately seek to host both events. By doing so host nations and cities often justify the multi-billion dollar investment required to stage these events on economic development grounds with stated benefits to emerge from urban renewal, transport infrastructure and tourism development. Given the size of the Football World Cup and its economic impact it is surprising that this book is the first attempt to bring leading international mega-sport event researchers together to examine the management and organizational components of the event. Managing the Football World Cup follows in the same path as the editors' previous publication, Managing the Olympics, in exploring areas often overlooked by project management and business studies researchers. Therefore considering the global impact of the Football World Cup it is time for a detailed examination of the planning, organization, management, implementation and related commercial features of this mega-sport event"--

Sport : race, ethnicity and identity : building global understanding( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sport has long been a paradoxical environment with respect to issues of 'race', ethnicity, and identity. For much of the twentieth century, sports around the world were enclaves of difference. Whites and non-whites, for example, were separated on the sports field as they were in many ways off the field. Today sport is much more
Embodied masculinities in global sport( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though an integral element of sport sociology, the study of masculinities in sport has been largely confined to Western sports such as American football. This book provides a more expanded view, offering tantalising insights into sport and manliness from culturally and geographically distinct perspectives. Editors Jorge Knijnik and Daryl Adair, along with a group of international researchers, articulate how various types of masculinities can be played out in different sports by drawing from personal experiences of athletes, investigating the cultural -- and even global -- impact of male achievements in sport, and comparing men's experiences in sport with women's. While maintaining the body's pivotal role in the social construction of gender, "Embodied masculinities" provides the sport sociological literature with an innovative and truly global perspective on what it means to "be a man", whether on the field, on the court, or in the saddle

Ancestral footprints : assumptions of 'natural' athleticism among Indigenous Australians by Daryl Adair( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The article addresses the fascination with Aboriginal physical acumen in sport, arguing that although performance excellence ought to be appreciated there are risks associated with an obsession about the capabilities of Indigenous athletic bodies. In particular, there is a (generally unspoken) assumption that Indigenous people ought to rely on their sportive proficiency in order to command respect in wider society. This overlooks their potential for success in areas where the body is not centre stage, such as in education, science, business, information technology, fine arts, and so on. In developing a critique of sport performance and Indigenous involvement, the paper presents perspectives from two non-Aboriginal observers, Peter McAllister and Robert De Castella, one an academic and the other a former elite athlete." -- [Authors abstract] page 23

Sport Sponsorship Alliances: Relationship Management for Shared Value( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

<Title><x>Abstract</x></title><sec><title>Purpose</title>Using a case study of an international sport event, this paper examines the inter-organisational relationship between a sport event property and its corporate sponsors.</sec><sec><title>Design/methodology/approach</title>Interviews were conducted with personnel from the National Sport Organisation (NSO) responsible for the delivery of this major event, and from four of its corporate sponsorship partners.</sec><sec><title>Findings</title>The findings indicated that both formal and informal governance were critical to the relationships underpinning these sponsorship alliances. From a dyadic perspective, it was found that the satisfaction of sponsorship partners had two key elements: tangible commercial benefits from the sponsor-sponsee alliance, and the less tangible but none the less valuable relationship support within the partnership. In short, partner satisfaction and alliance stability stemmed from relational constructs and the balance of formal governance mechanisms.</sec><sec><title>Originality/value</title>This paper explores the variables that generate value and maintain alliance stability for improved sponsorship governance. These findings, while focused on a single case study, have implications for research in the field of sponsorship and to the area of business-to-business relationships more broadly.</sec>
