Essence of Sport by Verner Moller

Book Description

Problems within modern sports are proliferating. Fraud, drug taking and other health damaging consequences of high performance sports have revealed that the idea of sport as a healthy and educational enterprise is nothing but an illusion. Nevertheless sports attract huge crowds. That the public does not turn its back on modern sports despite the evils involved is something of a mystery which indicates that the lure of sports is much different from what is normally thought. A discussion of the attraction of sports is imperative for an up-to-date understanding of modern sport. The authors in "The Essence of Sport" bring a wide range of international perspectives and approaches to this common theme and provide valuable insights into contemporary sport.

Elite Sport, Doping and Public Health by Verner Moller Elite Sport, Doping and Public Health, Paperback (January 2010)

The issue of doping in sport was once of interest only to aficionados of elite sports. Nowadays, it is a matter of intense public scrutiny that spans the worlds of health, medicine, sports, politics, technology, and beyond. This title illustrates how the issue of doping has evolved beyond the world of elite sport into an arena of public health.

Ethics of Doping and Anti-doping by Verner Moller Ethics of Doping and Anti-doping, Hardback (August 2009)

With every positive drugs test the credibility and veracity of modern elite sport is diminished. This book critiques anti-doping policy and practice. It argues that the fight against doping - promoted as an initiative to cleanse sport of cheats - is at heart nothing less than a battle to save sport from itself.
