About the Author

Edited by Wladimir Andreff, Professor Emeritus, University of Paris 1 Pantheon Sorbonne, France


`Written by some of the most prominent scholars in sports economics, this book focuses on issues that have been less investigated in the traditional literature so far. The covered topics range from specific questions of sport governance and sport finance to sport betting. In my view, the collection is a "must" for all readers seeking to overstep the beaten track.' -- Egon Franck, University of Zurich, Switzerland
