Pampel (sociology, University of Colorado) chronicles the use of performance-enhancing drugs in American sports, and reviews the major laws and court cases involving drug use and testing. Extensive reference chapters provide brief biographical sketches of players and scientists, cite books and articles on both medical and social aspects of the issue, and list government and sports agencies. Appendices reprint the Anabolic Steroid Control Acts, the Supreme Court decision on drug testing of student athletes, and NIDA research reports.
