Elite Sport Doping and Public Health Book Description:

The issue of doping in sport was once of interest only to aficionados of elite sports. Nowadays, it is a matter of intense public scrutiny that spans the worlds of health, medicine, sports, politics, technology, and beyond. In keeping with this territorial expansion, the aim of this book is to illustrate how the issue of doping has evolved beyond the world of elite sport into an arena of public health. In so doing, the book draws upon multi-disciplinary perspectives from applied and professional ethics, biomedical science, history, philosophy, policy studies, and sociology. The book should be of interest to scholars in health sciences, sports studies, and to sports administrators and policy makers.
