    “Key reading and a central reference point for anyone who intends to enter the realm of sport bioethics”

    Last year, Silvia Camporesi and Mike McNamee published Bioethics, Genetics and Sport (Routledge), addressing the philosophical implications of the latest scientific developments and technological data. We asked Dr. Matija Mato Škerbić, Dept. of Philosophy at the University of Zagreb, for a review. Dr. Škerbić presents the book chapter by chapter, and concludes that this is one of those books that will by referred to as capital works in the philosophy of sport.

    Useful for almost anyone interested in sports, but primarily as introductions

    Pam Sailors finds a useful metaphor in the Swiss army knife when reviewing Ethics and Governance in Sport: The future of sport imagined, edited by Yves Vanden Auweele, Elaine Cook & Jim Parry (Routledge) – both are brilliantly designed, with many small and useful implements/chapters, but one requires sturdier stuff in order to construct big houses or conceive and conduct in-depth studies of sports.

    The Sum Less Than the Parts

    The title of the anthology The Ethics of Sport: Essential Readings, edited by Arthur L. Caplan & Brendan Parent (Oxford University Press), is essentially a misnomer, according to our reviewer, Shawn Klein. The collected journal articles deal only occasionally with ethics, and the book’s purpose and audience is basically unclear. Some contributions, though, are worthy of the title.
