Baker & Taylor
In titles that offer all of the statutes, legal opinions, and studies needed to structure a cohesive argument on a given controversial topic, issues are presented from multiple points of view, sidebars cite laws and opinions to aid in critical analysis, and paratextual questions encourage reader engagement.

Facts on File
The use of drugs by American athletes has come under increasing scrutiny. As steroids, stimulants, and supplements have become more easily available and salaries and endorsement deals have become more lucrative, it seems that more athletes are using substances designed to improve their performance-whether legal or illegal. But what kinds of restrictions and punishments should athletes face? Should the federal government get involved, or should it be up to professional sports associations to police their members? And is the problem of drugs in sports really just an example of overblown media coverage? Drugs and Sports considers these and other issues from different viewpoints in a balanced account of this controversial topic.
