While the German Democratic Republic's secret "State Plan" was in effect, more than ten thousand unsuspecting athletes were given massive doses of anabolic steroids. These athletes achieved massive success at the Olympics, but for many their physical and emotional health was permanently damaged. This new revised edition of Faust's Gold draws on the revelations of criminal trials of GDR coaches, doctors and officials who have now confessed to ruthless medical experiments. This new edition highlights recent cases of performance enhancing drugs used in baseball, the BALCO scandal and international cycling.

Summary: "You may grow faint reading of the systematic blight that was visited upon East Germany's children and their children's children, the birth defects, the staining of a nation's honor for the sake of neurotic sports supremacy. But I urge you to endure, to take it all in. For only then will you cry out with the requisite fury: Never again. Never again."--Kenny Moore, Sports Illustrated "Finally, a historical, true account of how a small country of 17 million people, scientists, doctors, and trainers crafted a successful Olympic team using illegal performance-enhancing drugs."--Dr. Robert Voy, former Chief Medical Officer of the United States Olympic Committee "Parents with teenage athletes will be particularly interested in learning how desperate coaches, conspiring with unscrupulous physicians, can cast aside all principles and willingly inflict harm on youngsters if it results in winning. There is a lot for all of us to learn from this carefully researched and thorough book."--Dr. Richard F. Spark, Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School.
