AUTHOR

Walsh, Adrian, Giulianotti, Richard

SUMMARY

Written from the contrasting yet complementary perspectives of sociology and philosophy, this book explores the far-reaching ethical consequences of the runaway commodification of sport, focusing on those instances where commodification gives rise to morally undesirable consequences. The authors consider three main areas of concern for participators and observers alike: the corrosion of the core meanings and values of sport, the increasing elitism of access to sporting commodities, and the undermining of social conditions that support sporting communities.Unique in its focus on the ethical dimension of the powerful economics of today's sport, this book will be of interest not only to those in the fields of sports studies and ethics of sport, but also to academics, researchers and students in philosophy of morality, sociology, and the ethics of globalisation as viewed through the ultimate globalised phenomenon of modern sport.Walsh, Adrian is the author of 'Ethics, Money And Sport This Sporting Mammon', published 2006 under ISBN 9780415333399 and ISBN 0415333393.
