Synopsis

Drugs and Sports by Alan Marzilli

The use of drugs by American athletes has come under increasing scrutiny. As steroids, stimulants, and supplements have become more easily available and salaries and endorsement deals have become more lucrative, it seems that more athletes are availing themselves of substances designed to improve their performance - whether legal or illegal. But what kinds of restrictions and punishments should athletes face? Should the federal government get involved, or should it be up to professional sports associations to police their members? And is the problem of drugs in sports really just an example of overblown media coverage? Drugs and Sports considers these and other issues from different viewpoints in a balanced account of this controversial topic.

Reviews

Unlike similar titles in a number of other series, these books were written by individual authors and offer clear, well-supported theories that make use of many examples...these volumes have a definite place in libraries where material on these topics is needed for more adept readers and researchers.
