Product Overview

The Olympic Games are a major international multi-sport event. During its history, both the Summer and Winter Games were a subject of many scandals and controversies. Some states boycotted the Games on various occasions, often as a sign of protest against the International Olympic Committee or contemporary politics of other participants. After both World Wars, the losing countries were not invited. Other controversies include decisions by referees and even gestures made by athletes. This book reviews the scandals in the Summer Olympic Games from 1908 to 1980 including the controversy of the Black Power Salute in 1968, the Munich Massacre during the 1972 games and the 1980 Boycott.
