Über dieses Buch

​​This book examines sports doping from production and distribution, detection and punishment. Detailing the daily operations of the trade and its gray area as a semi-legal market, the authors cover important issues ranging from athletes most at risk to the role of organized crime in sports doping, and whether sports governing bodies are enabling the trade. Challenges for law enforcement and legislation, and efforts to control PED use in the worldwide sports community and among aspiring athletes, are also discussed in depth. The book's extensive research:• Estimates the demand for performance-enhancing products. • Traces the route from legal substances to illegal uses. • Identifies classes of suppliers and their methods of operation. • Tracks typical distribution systems from suppliers to users. • Examines the economics of the market: prices, profits, revenue. • Assesses the state of anti-doping law enforcement efforts.Starting with an unprecedented case study in Italy, the intense scrutiny from one pivotal country yields a potential template for research and policy on a world scale. Doping and Sport makes solid contributions to the work of researchers in criminology and criminal justice, particularly with an interest in corruption, drug trafficking, and criminal networks; researchers in sports science and public health; and policymakers.

Stimmen zum Buch

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, which is extremely well organised and written. This book is a page-turner that would most certainly benefit those in the fields of criminology and the criminal justice system, with particular interest in corruption, drug trafficking, and criminal networks. It would also make essential reading for students of social sciences and sport sciences, athletes and gym owners. … The Sports Doping Market is truly a wonderful book that I have absolutely no reservations to recommend.” (Eileen Barker, Trends in Organized Crime, Vol. 18, 2015)
