Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Offers a historical perspective on the growing field of sports medicine and the scientific study of exercise, sport, and physical education, as well as the persistence of "pseudoscience." In 10 essays (eight previously published), contributors discuss topics as far- ranging and current as the use of steroids, training for competition, athlete's heart, exercise physiology, physical activity and sport for females, women's health, physical culture and quackery, and diet. Of interest to both scholars and general readers.
