This well-organized guide covers the theories and mechanics of moral reasoning, ethical and unethical behavior in sport, and the development of moral education through sport. A practical, case-based approach to sport-related dilemmas teaches readers how to successfully apply moral reasoning skills in good decision making.

  • Lighthearted cartoons reinforce learned moral concepts and develop decision-making skills
  • Ethical terms, found in text boxes in each chapter, keep the reader on track with key terms and their definitions
  • Decision-making models form the foundation to solving ethical dilemmas
  • Case studies at the end of each chapter explore several sport issues and underscore presented reasoning models

A searchable online version of the text enables readers to quickly locate specific topics. Resources for faculty members are also available on our companion Website.
