About This Book

Drugs in Sport is the most comprehensive and accurate text on the emotive, complex and critical subject of performance enhancement and doping within sport. Thoroughly updated in light of the latest World Anti-Doping Code and taking into account the latest regulations, procedures and landmark cases, this 8th edition explores the science behind drug use in sport, as well as its ethical, social, political and administrative context.

Introducing an increased focus on athletes with specific needs and on corrupt doping practices, the book covers key topics including:

- an evaluation of the prevalence of doping in sport;

- the latest doping control regulations stipulated by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA);

- the science and side effects of each major class of drug used in sport;

- cutting-edge issues such as drug use by transgender athletes;

- medical and anti-doping considerations for athletes with an impairment;

- governance and corruption in sport including institutionalised doping;

- issues surrounding sport nutrition and supplement use in sport;

- medical and pharmaceutical services at major sporting events.

Accessibly written, and supported throughout with illustrative case studies and data, Drugs in Sport provides a crucial and objective resource for students and researchers, athletes, sports scientists, coaches and athlete-support staff, journalists, sports administrators and policymakers, alike.
