The authors of the leading sports law casebook joined with two of the leaders in the sports law field to develop a problem-based sports law and governance text for undergraduate and graduate students. The text is presented in the traditional law school case method style, with a unique focus on how those regulatory and governance materials can be used to solve problems in sports, from issues like Deflategate to the future of big-time intercollegiate athletics. Whether students are interested in careers in professional or amateur sports law, they will acquire foundational knowledge that will help them identify legal issues, minimize risk, and become a generation of problem solvers within the sports industry. Contracts, torts, agency, labor/employment, antitrust, and intellectual property law are all addressed, as well as health and safety issues and high school, college, and international/Olympic/regulatory concerns. In a world where sports has proven to be a leader, the book also addresses racial and gender equity issues in depth.

This Bibliography, the most comprehensive attempted for the pre-revolutionary period of Russian international legal history, contains more than 3500 entries. Its origins lie in the author's efforts during the past quarter century to bring this largely unknown and uncharted body of material to the world of Russian and western international legal scholarship.Organized by author or title and thoroughly indexed by name, geographic location, and subject, with brief annotations where needed and references for authors to book reviews and personalia. English translations are provided for titles in Cyrillic. Locations are given for monographs, treaty collections, and texts. Although the Bibliography is intended for the historian of public and private international law and diplomacy, the general historian of Russia, the specialist in international relations, the Russian legal historian, and the comparative lawyer will find much of interest here, as will those interested in the history of the book or of publishing in Russia.
