More and more top athletes are apparently using prohibited means to improve their own performance and to eliminate actual or feared disadvantages compared to their competitors. In their work, the authors examine the structural dynamics and dependences that are effective behind the actors' backs and which encourage the use of doping nationally and internationally and across all disciplinary boundaries. On the basis of their analysis, they propose an additional new way, going beyond control and education, of how sports organisations, in cooperation with the social groups involved in problem generation, could more successfully curb doping in the future. The book makes an important contribution to the current debate on doping.
