Winners and Losers includes material on the federal and provincial organization of Canadian sport, culture and competition, women and minorities, the business and economics of sport, and the use of performance-enhancing drugs.

For the student's benefit, key words are highlighted throughout the text. The book also contains tables, charts, figures, and descriptions of important sports facts.
