“This recently published book provides a welcome addition for those engaged in the study of legal aspects of sport.
[Anderson] has provided careful analysis of many major features of modern sports law. One of the strengths of his work is the way in which he draws useful comparisons between the experience and decisions of the English courts with those of other common law jurisdictions. In addition, the ultimate readers are helped in their understanding by the reasoned and helpful referencing throughout the book. One must also add congratulations to Hart Publishing for their provision of an easy to follow structure and indexing of the text. Finally, it is suggested that Anderson's book will no doubt be a popular purchase by those who wish to enhance their study and interest in sports, whether as practitioners, students or general readers.” – David Dovey,
