Synopsis: This text is aimed at students studying sport management, exercise, fitness management and athletic training. It should teach aspiring sport managers about this rapidly expanding field, enabling them to define sport management and discuss the scope of opportunities the sport industry presents. Thorough discussions on the major challenges confronting various segments of the industry are put in the historical context against psychological, sociological and philosophical foundations of sport. Key features include: learning objectives for each chapter; learning activities that help students meet those objectives; extensive references to sources of additional information; real life scenarios, case studies, profiles of sport managers and news stories that illustrate specific points; information about relevant publications, governing bodies and professional associations; and ethical, legal and communication considerations.

About the Author: Janet B. Parks, DA, is a distinguished teaching professor, former graduate studies coordinator, and former sport management division chair for the School of Human Movement, Sport, and Leisure Studies at Bowling Green State University in Ohio.

She was a founding member of the North American Society for Sport Management (NASSM), which has honored her with the Earle F. Zeigler Award for professional achievement (1992) and the Distinguished Service Award (2001). She is a NASSM research fellow; a fellow in the Research Consortium of the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance; and the recipient of the Outstanding Achievement Award from the Sport Management Council of the National Association for Sport and Physical Education. In 1994-1995 and 2002-2003 she was an honorary fellow in the Women’s Studies Research Center at the University of Wisconsin at Madison.

Her published works include textbooks, book chapters, journal articles, and research reports. Sport management career development, sexist language, and gender issues in sport are among her research interests.

She was the first editor in chief for the Sport Management Library and was one of the founding co-editors of the Journal of Sport Management. Widely respected in the field, Parks makes frequent presentations to professional societies and serves as a consultant to several university sport management programs.

Parks received her doctor of arts in physical education from Middle Tennessee State University and completed postdoctoral study at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. She makes her home in Bowling Green, Ohio, where she enjoys biking and working out in her free time.

Jerome Quarterman, PhD, is an associate professor and member of the graduate faculty in sport management at Florida State University. He teaches a wide range of graduate courses, including Organizational Theory; Research Methods; Organizational Behavior; Human Resource Management; Intercollegiate Athletics Administration; Race and Sport in Society; and Ethics in Sport Management. He has also taught students in both the undergraduate and graduate degree programs at Bowling Green State University.

Dr. Quarterman's prior work experiences include teaching at Hampton University, Alabama State University, Kentucky State University, and Southern University and serving as intercollegiate athletics director at Central State University and Alabama State University.

He has been published in the Journal of Sport Management, the Physical Educator, and the International Journal of Sport Psychology. His current research interest is applying organizational behavior research to sport industry management.

Dr. Quarterman received his bachelor of science degree from Savannah State University, a master of education degree from Kent State University, and a doctorate of philosophy from Ohio State University. Dr. Quarterman is the proud parent of two grown children, Terrance and Michele.
