This new collection examines not only how athletes looked to the nation's judicial system to solve conflicts but also how their cases trans-formed the interpretation of laws. These essays examine a vast array of social and legal controversies including "Heywood v. NBA" (1971), which allowed any player to enter the draft; "Flood v. Kuh"n (1972), which consid-ered baseball's antitrust status; the Danny Gardella lower level 1948 case regarding free agency and baseball; Muhammad Ali's celebrated stance against the U.S. draft; Renee Richards's 1976 lawsuit against the U.S. Tennis Association and its due process ramifications; and human rights violations in international law with respect to the increased recruitment of underage Latin baseball players in the Caribbean region are a few examples of the vast array of stories included.

Sport and the Law links these cases to other cases and topics, giving the reader the opportunity to see the threads weaving law and sport together in American society.
