Greenwood Publishing Group, 2004 - Reference - 602 pages
A quaint idea in the 1890s, the Olympic Games are now the foremost sporting event in the world. Information on the winners and medals abounds, but this unique book provides information on the events surrounding the Olympics: political controversies, scandals, tragedies, economic issues, and peripheral incidents. Covering specific games from the 1896 Olympics in Athens to the 2002 games in Salt Lake City, this volume also presents plans for the 2004 Athens games, 2006 Turin games, and the 2008 summer games.
Enhanced with new illustrations, this book includes sections on both the Summer and Winter Games. Chronologically arranged entries cover each of the games, while appendixes provide further information, including details about the Olympic committees. Bibliographic information is provided with the entries, as well as in a general bibliography. A full subject index makes this volume the ideal reference for anyone interested in the colorful history and scope of the Olympics.
