FOREWORD I began the foreword of the first edition of Sports Law with a quote that is ali the more relevant in today's sporting environment, and so I once again adopt it: Sport is an order of chivalry, a code of ethics and aesthetics, recruiting its members from all classes and all peoples. Sport is a truce: in an era of antagonism and conflicts it is the respite of the gods in which fair competition ends in respect and friendship. Sport is education, the truest kind of education, that of character. Sport is culture because it creates beauty and, above all, for those who have the least opportunity to feast on it. Rene Maheu, Director General of UNESCO It is most unusual to have the five leading scholars in a field of study cooperate on a text for publication. That is what makes this second edition of Sports Law so important and so relevant in today's sporting, competitive environment. The text has not only the necessary outline of the history of the development of this 'lex specialis' (now referred to as a 'lex sportiva'), along with an outline of the present legal organisational structure governing sport, but within each chapter a comprehensive analysis of a developing jurisprudence for sport. This body of jurisprudence, known as sports law, has developed quickly-a reflection of the professionalisation of sport as well as the associated sponsorship and monetary rewards now available to our sporting elite. This text is not only academically excellent; it is most readable. The legal analysis reveals the great intelligence and collective scholarship of the writers. The book's design is clever and so will prove useful to both the scholar-be it writer, lecturer or student-and the legal practitioner. Each chapter begins with an overview of the content addressed and then an introduction, both of which assist in legal research. The top
