Genetically Modified Athletes

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

In a provocative analysis of sport ethics and human values, Genetically Modified Athletes imagines the brave new world of sport. The internationally acclaimed book examines this issue at a crucial time in its theorisation, questioning the very cornerstone of sporting and medical ethics, asking whether sporting authorities can, or even should, protect sport from genetic modification.

This book brings together sport studies and bioethics to challenge our understanding of the values that define sport. We already allow that athletes can optimise their performance by the use of technologies; without wishing to assert that 'anything goes' in sports performance enhancement, Andy Miah argues that simply being human matters in sport and that genetic modification does not have to challenge this capacity.

Genetically Modifies Athletes includes examination of:

* the concept of 'good sport' and the definition of cheating

* the doped athlete - should we be more sympathetic?

* the role of the medical industry

* the usefulness (or not) of the terms 'doping' and 'anti-doping'.

An important and growing field of interest, this book should be read by students, academics and practitioners.
