Exploring why professional team sport clubs are almost always able to survive despite severe financial problems, Professional Team Sports and the Soft Budget Constraint, edited by Rasmus K. Storm, Klaus Nielsen & Zsolt Havran (Edward Elgar) looks at the soft budget constraint theory, SBC.

Brian Goff is a professor of economics at Western Kentucky University, and his latest book is Sports Economics Uncut (Edward Elgar), in which he explores sports as a mirror of the world and a powerful agent of change, and covers subjects ranging from racial discrimination to inequality, law enforcement, managers and risky decisions, club membership, and politics.

The competition for government funding of major sports events: why do some applicants pass the needle’s eye? | A Summary
In this feature article, Eva Lechner and Harry Arne Solberg summarize their recent article from International Journal of Sport Policy and Politics in which they present the results of a study of the policies, or lack thereof, behind state financial support for major sports events. Being unable to establish formal policies, they looked for other guiding principles and found that political lobbyism and the popularity of the sports in question played dicisive parts.
The International Journal of Sport Policy and Politics aims to publish articles that address all aspects of sport policy irrespective of academic discipline. The Forum Editor’s pick from the current issue: THE COMPETITION FOR GOVERNMENT FUNDING OF MAJOR SPORTS EVENTS: WHY DO SOME APPLICANTS PASS THE NEEDLE’S EYE? by Eva Lechner & Harry Arne Solberg.
Nu finns läroböcker i idrottsvetenskap på alla skandinaviska majoritetsspråk; det senaste tillskottet är norska antologin Idrettsvitenskap: Perspektiver og praksis, sammanställd av Stig Arve Sæther (Universitetsforlaget). I den medverkar några av de främsta norska idrottsforskarna, samt därtill en svensk och en dansk. En annan dansk idrottsforskare tog på sig att recensera boken för idrottsforum.org, Ulrik Wagner, och från honom blev det både ris och ros.

Sport, Business and Management serves to promote the development of a coherent, high-quality body of work in sport, business and management, an area that has until now been largely overlooked by academia despite being one of the few industries to warrant its own daily section in most newspapers.
