A glance at the daily newspaper reveals a myriad of moral imperfections in sport. Stories on drug use, violence, scandals, and unethical practices are nearly as common as recaps of the previous day's game. "Ethics in Sport" examines these and other key issues. It is the finest and most comprehensive literature to date on the ethical issues confronting sport in contemporary society. The book includes - an examination of good sportsmanship, fair play, and cheating and their true places in today's sport environment; -an ethical exploration of the most dominant, moral controversy in sport today - performance-enhancing drugs; -a review of gender equity and identity in modern-day sport, including a look into the strides that women have made and the male "paternalism" of sport that may hinder future progress;-an overview of animal rights in sport and the moral and ethical issues of exploiting, maiming, and even killing animals in the name of sport; -a look into sport's influence on society;-an assessment of violence in sport and its threat to the moral social fiber; and -an evaluation of whether sport still teaches values that are vital and beneficial. Ethics in Sport, Third Edition, offers 32 essays by well-known authors. These essays explore the roots of the ethical and moral dilemmas so prevalent in sport culture today. Nearly half the essays are new to this edition.
