Doping in Sport: Global Ethical Issues

by

Doping in Sport: Global Ethical Issues Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
