Athletes and Drug Use (Introducing Issues with Opposing Viewpoints) (Hardcover)
Society holds certain professions in high-esteem, and professional sports is one of them. While celebrity athletes land on the front pages for living large, they also splash the pages for reports of performance-enhancing drug use. This collection of essays will help readers cut through the hype to understand why doping is not a good thing. Readers will evaluate whether performance-enhancing drugs should be tolerated, how testing of professional athletes should be handled, and whether testing student athletes is effective and necessary. Because readers are presented with a variety of viewpoints, this book is also a great resource for report-writing and research. Essay sources include Johnny O'Connor, Urban Wiesing, Todd Pheifer, and Eddie Pells.
