The descriptions and examples of unethical behaviors in sport in this book will challenge readers to rethink how they view sport and question whether participating in sport builds character—especially at the youth and amateur levels. • Describes and analyzes key ethical issues, such as cheating, fair play, violence, discriminatory actions, and the use of performance-enhancing drugs, in a single volume • Identifies how ethical problems in sport affect sport in the United States and internationally but also significantly impact society overall • Examines significant events and influential individuals to provide a historical and sociological context for understanding how and why individuals behave unethically in sport • Provides a wealth of information and resources that describe how poor behaviors of athletes, coaches, and parents in sport can be changed through educational interventions and a reemphasis on values like integrity
