Sports or Athletics: A North American Dilemma.
Murray, J. Alex, Ed.
This book reports on the 15th Annual Canadian American Seminar, the purpose of which was to explore the widening gulf between sports and athletics, and to examine and predict trends in the U.S. and Canada. The seminar presentations are divided into six sessions, plus the Frank Boland Memorial Lecture delivered by Jesse Owens. Each session includes two or three presentations and a discussion period. The first session is devoted to the topic of conceptual analyses of sports vs. athletics. The second session deals with the Olympic Games and includes three presentations by people involved in the Olympics. The third session discusses the conflict between the sport side and the business side of athletics. The fourth session looks at the tendency in North America toward sports for adults and athletics for children. The fifth session includes presentations dealing with the financial side of athletics. The last session discusses the future of sports and the media influence on that future. (PB)
