Ethics in Sport



Editor, William J. Morgan.

Includes chapters by former College at Brockport faculty members:

Warren P. Fraleigh. Intentional rules violations: one more time.

R. Scott Kretchmar (co-author). In defense of competition and winning: revisiting athletic tests and contests.

The latest edition of Ethics in Sport doesn't rest on its laurels as the finest and most comprehensive collection of literature to date on moral and ethical issues confronting sport in contemporary society. The diverse anthology of essays written by world-renowned scholars has been updated to reflect the very latest issues of significance in the sporting world and contains many valuable changes. A primer on ethics has been added at the beginning of the text, making this book even more accessible to readers with no background in ethical studies or philosophy. In addition, while some classic essays were retained from the first edition, more than half of the essays are new to the second edition. Ethics in Sport, Second Edition, also includes three previously unpublished essays to provide readers with new perspectives on current themes and how they compare and contrast with already published views. In addition, the text features expanded sections on fair play and social ethics. A completely revamped section on drug use and genetic technology brings readers up to date on ethical questions in these controversial and rapidly changing areas. These new features make this text the ideal choice for sport management and sport studies courses.
