Abstract

FOR the first time Great Britain holds the three principal World's air records; for we do not think anyone will cavil at that description of the three “absolute” records of speed, altitude and distance in a straight line. Though we are not directly concerned with them, it may not be out of place to mention also that a British boat holds the World's water speed record and a British motor‐car the World's land speed record, which Sir Malcolm Campbell the other day put a little nearer to the 300 m.p.h. which is the motorist's ideal of the moment. It is not wholly irrelevant to mention these records in other elements since they were both made with Rolls‐Royce engines adapted from those which hold the air speed record.

Abstract

Discusses the problems caused by pigeons in buildings and some common control techniques, and outlines a remedial programme. Briefly examines the natural history of the feral pigeon. Details the common control techniques of food reduction, poisons and narcotic baits, trapping, fertility control and removal of nest sites, shooting, predators, bird scarers, bird nets,sprung wires, spikes and repellent gels. Advocates the implementation of a specialized site investigation and suggests that control is unlikely to be achieved by the application of a single product or technique.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to show how one of the biggest phenomena of the twenty‐first century is the internationalisation of professional sports and how premier league football epitomises this. With the influx of foreign players, managers and now owners, European League Football has become big business. This paper aims to provide a theoretical analysis of the management implications of foreign players in the English Premiership League football – renamed the Barclays Premier League to suit the needs of its major sponsors.

Design/methodology/approach

The approach adopted is purely qualitative in nature, evaluating the top Barclays Premier League teams and the impact of globalisation on their reconfigurations since the early 1990s to date. The study draws mainly from a review of the extant literature on sports and management, as well as a critical analysis of media reports.

Findings

Globalisation has emerged as a new force that has changed the way corporations are managed. Financial services, retail and information technology firms have all responded to this new wave – and so also has sports. Unfortunately while sports have the potential to teach lessons on management strategy, management researchers seem to have relegated sports to the sociology and psychology disciplines.

Practical implications

The Barclays Premier league football provides a unique environment for management decisions and processes to occur in a range of markets and at varied levels. However, the globalisation of professional sports has received relatively very little attention in the academic literature – especially in the field of business and management.

Originality/value

This paper contributes to the scant literature on the management implications of football by highlighting how globalisation has affected and reconfigured professional sports using the influx of foreign players into the English football league as a point of departure.

Abstract

In the last four years, since Volume I of this Bibliography first appeared, there has been an explosion of literature in all the main functional areas of business. This wealth of material poses problems for the researcher in management studies — and, of course, for the librarian: uncovering what has been written in any one area is not an easy task. This volume aims to help the librarian and the researcher overcome some of the immediate problems of identification of material. It is an annotated bibliography of management, drawing on the wide variety of literature produced by MCB University Press. Over the last four years, MCB University Press has produced an extensive range of books and serial publications covering most of the established and many of the developing areas of management. This volume, in conjunction with Volume I, provides a guide to all the material published so far.
