Description

Continuing controversies associated with 'GM' demonstrate how the new technologies are forcing a reappraisal of our most established value systems. The athlete's body has long been an icon of human physical perfection. Would GM simply make the best even better? Should modification be described as 'doping' or should it make a competitor ineligible to be described as human? In an already complex area, do we need to rethink some of the most basic concepts in sport? Genetically Modified Athletes represents a comprehensive exploration of the ethical implications of GM sport. The text examines all the key issues including: *fair play *performance enhancement *genetic technologies *moral issues *human rights. This controversial subject will be of interest to a wide range of sport scholars and practitioners. www GMathletes.net
