The Ethics of Sport explores moral issues that arise in sports, especially competitive athletics, in a manner that is accessible not only to sports fans or participants but also to those critical of sports or simply interested in an introduction to the kind of moral issues raised by the practice of athletics.

The issues considered range from the more abstract, such as the importance that should be assigned to winning in sports, to specific controversies suchas arguments over the use of performance enhancing drugs, the nature of gender equity, and the evaluation of violence in competition.

The book explores different sides of these issues and suggests reasonable resolutions to the kinds of ethical questions prevalent in the practice of sports.
