Today, the fight against drug use in sport has become an acute international preoccupation. This up to date overview of doping is richly illustrated with specific cases in various pan-European & world sports events & reflects the extent to which athletes will jeopardise their health to attain glory. What sports rely on what drugs to sustain performance or to build up the appropriate muscles? How do certain drugs affect the athlete's body? How are such drugs monitored, what masking agents are applied to hide their use & how do monitoring systems stay ahead of new drug methods & practices? Doping in sport traces the social importance of sport in recent history & the evolution of doping in major sports events. It lists banned substances & practices, discusses their physical effects & discusses the policies & controls which are being introduced, both nationally & internationally.
