Sport Governance provides a comprehensive guide to the practical application of governance principles to amateur and professional sport organisations operating at the community, state/provincial, national, and international levels. It presents a balanced view between accepted practice and what contemporary research evidence tells us about a range of governance principles and practices. Organised in three parts, the text provides the reader with

* an explanation of the concept of governance, key terms and definitions as well as the economic, political and social factors that impact on how the governance function is enacted within sport organisations;
* an understanding of the "mechanics" of governance - the elements of structure, process and performance that ensure the governance function is carried out within sport organisations; and
* a discussion of a number of contextual issues in sport governance, including dual leadership, ethics, governance change and future governance challenges.

Sport Governance is essential reading for practitioners working and volunteering in the sport industry and upper level undergraduate and postgraduate students enrolled in sport and leisure management programs.
