Changes in the Sport Management Text

While I have considered this text one of the best on the topic of Sport Management, I am disappointed
that the organization has changed, getting away from the basic sport management concepts that undergraduate
students would be most interested in, and replacing these things with other less important items. I am also
concerned that certain types of sport participants and activities are left out. For example, the original section
on sport history is gone. Any topic of study needs to include where the area of study first developed. The concept of research is addressed in two different sections, where one would do the job. There is no chapter or information of the huge increase of masters sports (a big economic impact) and extreme sports. The area
of sports tourism has been eliminated, even though it is one of the largest areas of tourism growth in the world. The chapter on sports facilities and events should be in two different chapters, as there is much to review in
both areas, while I don't believe that there needs to be a full chapter on sports analytics. I am sorry that
this is not as good a text as the earlier additions.
