Delving into the temptation to enhance athletes’ performance with substances is great when fame, money, and national pride are involved, this volume moves from the early days of professional sports to the present, revealing how both human and animal athletes have had their strength and endurance improved through a range of steroids, hormones, and other drugs. Articles also look at antidoping regulations, and those who try to circumvent them, whether from state-sponsored doping regimens or individual efforts.
