Sport is filled with many paradoxes. Although fitness, strength, and other seemingly healthful benefits are inherently part of sport, there is also the constant presence of unhealthy and inappropriate associations. This dichotomy is quite prevalent in many forms in contemporary sport and Sport and Criminal Behavior examines some of the most relevant and thought-provoking occurrences of criminal and quasi-criminal behavior in sport.

By identifying pertinent issues, including motives and causes associated with such actions, this work presents a comprehensive view of these issues while providing ways such matters can be effectively dealt with in contemporary society. Among the topics addressed in this work are: drug issues, violence, gambling, ticket scalping, hazing, fraud in nonprofit sport, homeland security issues and disaster preparedness in sport and intellectual property (trademark law, copyright misappropriation, and criminal implications).

“The book is designed as an introductory textbook for college-level sport-management students, and as such it succeeds.  But other readers will find it an interesting beginning treatment of a timely topic… Summing Up: Recommended.” — CHOICE Magazine
