Doping in Sport: Global Ethical Issuesby Angela Schneider
Synopses & Reviews
This book considers ethical arguments about performance enhancing drugs in sport in a global context. It examines:
* The forces that are bringing about the debate of ethical issues in performance enhancing drugs in sport
* The sources of ethical debates in different continents and countries
* The variation of ethical arguments in different cultural, political, ideological and sports systems.
Whilst there has been a significant body of work that has looked at the importance of ethical issues in performance enhancing drugs in sport - there has been little, if any, consideration of the various ethical concepts in different countries and cultures involving sport. This is a major omission. This book fills the gap and provides a thorough review and analysis of the ethical literature on performance enhancing drugs in sport in the global society. It makes a major contribution to the worldwide anti-doping campaign in sport.
This volume was previously published as a special issue of the journal Sport In Global Society.
