There are few, if any, aspects of contemporary sport that do not raise ethical questions. From on-field relationships between athletes, coaches and officials, to the corporate responsibility of international sports organizations and businesses, ethical considerations permeate sport at every level.

This important new collection of articles showcases the very best international scholarship in the field of sports ethics, and offers a comprehensive, one-stop resource for any student, scholar or sportsperson with an interest in this important area. It addresses cutting-edge contemporary themes within sports ethics, such as gene doping, as well as introducing classic ethical debates that define our understanding of sport, sporting conduct and sport in practice. The Ethics of Sports is arranged into seven thematic sections, each of which includes an introduction by the editor that highlights the key themes and places each article in context, and offers suggestions for further reading.

The Ethics of Sports sheds new light on a wide range of issues within contemporary sports studies including doping, disability, gender and ethnicity; the practice of physical education and sports coaching; sports media; sports business and sports medicine. It is essential reading for all students with an interest in sport or applied ethics.

Review:

'An engaging, comprehensive and analytically acute collection of essays on a wide variety of topics dealing with ethical issues in sports. The Ethics of Sports is a welcome addition to the resources available to scholars and students of sports ethics and ranks among the very best such collections now available in this field.'Robert L. Simon, Sport, Ethics and Philosophy

'The Ethics of Sports helps to clarify the enormous ethical responsibilities that sport leaders have on influencing the development of either positive or negative thought processes among their athletes ... By using examples dating back to ancient Rome, The Ethics of Sports illuminates the profound social and interpersonal influences that sport has on the development of personality traits, morals, and societal ethos. For readers, it will help differentiate the fine line between the passion and poison of sport. For university sport psychology and related curricula, this text will be a highly valuable resource to help advance ethical and scholarly thought in the field.'Conrad Woolsey, PsycCRITIQUES

'A well composed collection of interesting and useful texts ... anyone who is interested in sports and who see themselves as educated people should have read at least some of what's in this book' – Ørnulf Seippel, idrottsforum.org
