Notes: "This Information Plus Reference Series title discusses organized athletics and also sports as a leisure activity; examines sports participation by Americans and its impact on health and society; looks at professional sports, college and high school sports, and the Olympics, with information on their participation, revenues, and impact on media and politics; and pays particular attention to controversial issues such as drug use, gambling, corruption, and the commercialization of "amateur" athletics. Designed as a ready-reference tool providing key data, this book saves researchers and students from the cumbersome task of locating the various data in pamphlets, legal journals, congressional reports, newspapers, and other sources. It is thoroughly indexed and includes complete source citations as well as listings of names, addresses, and telephone and fax numbers for relevant organizations."
