<p>Experienced attorney and sports enthusiast Freedman provides a comprehensive and extremely informative discussion of the antitrust legislation that affects professional sports--now undeniably a major business in the United States.

He offers an incisive analysis of monopolistic aspects of professional sports and other anti-competitive practices against the professional athlete and also examines state regulations and tort and contract liability in professional sports.
