Taking Sports Seriously provides an iconoclastic, out-of-the-box look at the intersection of sports and law in contemporary America. This collection of essays offers an unflinching take on the salient legal issues from the world of sports, including player violence, fan injuries, free agency, player agents, drug testing, athletes as role models, gambling, and other hot-button topics. Each essay provides background information on the issue, poses the relevant problems provocatively, and presents surprising resolutions sure to generate reflection and discussion. Taking Sports Seriously is ideal as a reading companion to a course in sports law or sports management. Written in a fast-paced, accessible style that unpacks jargon, this book brings sophisticated legal analysis to bear on the problems of sports.

About the Author:

Jeffrey Standen is a professor at Willamette University College of Law.

Review:

Jeffrey Standen's book provides a thought-provoking account of many controversies in American sports.... Standen's writing, while certainly not typical of academic literature, is lively, engaging, and accessible to those who do not have a legal background. --Curtis Fogel, The Law and Politics Book Review

Reading the book made me reconsider many of my stances on various sports law related issues. Some things I agreed with, others I did not, but either way, the topics and Standen's commentary are outstanding.... Anybody interested in sports will find it to be a good read, but those also interested in the law will take an extra liking to Standen's writing. --Darren Heitner, Sports Agent Blog

Standen has written a book with treatment of so many timely sport-related issues that it offers a veritable literary cafeteria plan for both academics and intellectual sports fans interested in the intersection between sports and the law...I found Taking Sports Seriously to be highly readable, a result of the book's attraction format and the author's lucid and sometimes humorous writing style. --Ryan Rodenberg, International Journal of Sport Communication
