Administrative Theory and Practice in Physical Education and Athletics.
Zeigler, Earle F., Ed.; Spaeth, Marcia J., Ed.
This collection of writings attempts to fulfill the need for practical preparation for administrative leadership. It provides alternative methods to the usual trial-and-error procedures by suggesting methods based on current management principles and the most recent theories of administration. Practical aspects of decision-making, planning, evaluating; technical administrative concerns of finance, public relations, and personnel are shown. The four parts of the book describe: (1) the background and development of administrative theory and practice in physical education; (2) the scope, methodology, summary, and findings concerning administrative processes including leadership, group cohesion, faculty job satisfaction, economic factors influencing athletics, communication, and environment; (3) technical administrative concerns such as human relations, planning and construction of facilities; employment theory and practice, and budgetary processes; and (4) philosophical recommendations for examining the present and the future.
