Sportsmanship is a broad concept: ethics, fairness, honor and self-control. Some people find it difficult to define what makes a 'good sport,' but state 'I know one when I see one.' This collection of new essays brings together the work of more than two dozen contributors from around the world who teach sportsmanship in a range of academic disciplines including sociology, psychology, economics, education, kinesiology and applied athletics. Topics include the moral ambiguities of cheating; recreation in prison; ethics and character formation; coaching perspectives; gender; race; and the portrayal of sportsmanship in film. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

    Friedrich Nietzsche
