Development of Human Values through Sports.
Frost, Reuben B., Ed.; Sims, Edward J., Ed.
The papers that comprise this document were delivered at the 1973 conference "The Development of Human Values through Sports." It is stated in the introduction that the participants are of the belief that values can be developed through sport, but such development is not automatic. The book reports on some of the available research on values in sports and offers new data; it also seeks to identify those human values worth fostering, problems and obstacles in their development, and specific recommendations for implementation. The papers in this document are divided into five parts: Major Addresses; Special Presentations; From the Disciplines; From the Firing Line; and Group Reports--Recommendations and Suggestions. The major addresses are as follows: "Values and Competitive Sport,""Contribution of a Sports Culture to the Development of Human Resources,""Values through Sports," and "Human Values in Sports Education and Their Relationship to Social Ends."
