Doping and Public Policy

Edited by: Verner Moller, John Hoberman

The great Tour de France scandal of 1998 was the first time ever that political forces intervened to lay bare the comprehensive doping practices of popular athletes. The essays in this book show that athletes who dope and those who pursue them are trapped in a fateful conflict far more complicated than the familiar story line suggests. Doping and Public Policy argues that the current strategy of condemnation and surveillance is not enough, and that it is time to rethink anti-doping policy in the global context where it belongs.
