Oxford University Press has published The Ethics of Sport: Essential Readings, which features an article by Professor Doug Abrams.

The book’s co-editors are Arthur L. Caplan, director of medical ethics at the NYU Langone Medical Center and an advisor to the International Olympic Committee, and Brendan Parent, director of applied bioethics at the NYU School of Professional Studies. They state that the book collects “27 of the most essential recent articles from philosophy, history, sociology, medicine, and law.” Each article explores “intersections of sports and ethics and brings attention to the immense role of sports in shaping and reflecting social values.”

Chapter 18 of the book is Professor Doug Abrams’ article, “Player Safety in Youth Sports: Sportsmanship and Respect as an Injury-Prevention Strategy.” The article originally appeared in the Seton Hall Journal of Sports & Entertainment Law in 2012.
