Minigh, a medical communication consultant, considers historical, scientific, legal, and ethical issues in this overview of sports medicine. In early chapters, she details the careers, responsibilities, and working environments of sports medicine professionals, reviews the history of the field, and describes common sports injuries, including injuries to both disabled and non-disabled athletes. Discussion encompasses the impact of injury on the athlete and the athlete's family, team, and competitors, and the use of performance-enhancing substances. Later chapters tackle all sides of controversial issues such as informed consent in sports medicine, the right to play, aggression and violence in sports, medical liability, and advertising by sports medicine professionals. A 170-page section of appendices offers annotated primary source documents, a timeline, and a glossary. The book is for students and others. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
