Sport in Latin America. Policy, Organization, Management

Routledge recently published Sport in Latin America. Policy, Organization, Management, a collection of essays that were edited by Gonzalo Bravo (West Virginia University), Rosa López de Amico (Universidad Pedagógica Experimental, Venezuela) and Charles Parrish (Western Carolina University).

The editors assembled a group of 30 scholars from all corners of the world that contributed with the 19 chapters of this book that were drawn from cutting-edge contemporary scholarship in management, policy, sociology and history. These chapters explore the role of public institutions, the relationship between sport policy and political regimes, the structure of governing bodies and professional leagues, and the impact sporting mega-events have had on those countries in Latin America that have organized these types of events.


Sport in Latin America. Policy, Organization, Management is the first book of its kind that is published in English that comprehensively examines how sport is organized in Latin America. It includes cases from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Peru and examples from Bolivia, Ecuador and Venezuela.
