A unique guide to events, controversies, and political and economic issues surrounding the Olympics.
From the Publisher:
The foremost sporting event in the world, the Olympic Games have grown from a quaint idea in the 1890s to a major world happening. This unique book shows the historical context in which each of the Olympic Games has taken place. Divided into sections on the Summer Games and the Winter Games, the book includes chronologically arranged entries on each of the games since 1896. Entries focus on such information as site selection, political questions, controversies, collateral events, changes in programming, and political and economic consequences of the games--all information that is not available in other reference works on the Olympics.The foremost sporting event in the world, the Olympic Games have grown from a quaint idea in the 1890s to a major world happening.
