A provocative history of doping in sports, packed with examples, that proposes a new emphasis for modern anti-doping efforts. Why is doping a perennial problem for sports? Is this solely a contemporary phenomenon? And should doping always be regarded as cheating, or do today’s anti-doping measures go too far? Drawing on case studies from the early twentieth century to the present day, this work explores why the current anti-doping system looks as it does, charting its origins to the founding of the modern Olympic Games.
