About

Overview

Is it possible to teach lasting values through sports? With coverage that explores the origins of sports, ethical theories as applied to sports, and key moral issues affecting sports throughout history to the present day, Modern Sports Ethics: A Reference Handbook surveys the realm of athletics and its potential as an arena for character development.

Taking examples from a variety of areas in nonprofessional athletics, including Little League baseball, the Tour de France and the Olympic Games, Modern Sports Ethics is an eye-opening yet evenhanded look at both the positive and negative impact sports have on society. The book focuses on a number of specific problems and controversies, including commercialization, performance-enhancing drugs, racism, sexism, physical violence and psychological ploys, and deliberate rule-breaking behavior.
