Book Description:

The Olympic Games are a modern international sports extravaganza with an ancient history. Today s Olympic Games have an importance reaching far beyond the four yearly festival of competitive athletics, with a constant presence in the public consciousness and a significant impact on social policy and politics, business, economics and the media.

The Olympics: A Critical Reader represents a unique, critical guide to the definitive sporting mega event. Combining classic texts and thoughtful editorial discussion with challenging new pieces, including previously unseen material from the IOC archive, the book systematically addresses the key themes in modern Olympism, including:

  • Olympic ethics

  • The Olympics and the media

  • Managing and marketing the Olympics

  • Politicising the Olympics

  • Paralympic studies

  • Cultural Olympics

  • Olympic education

  • Olympic legacies

  • The future of the Olympics

Each thematic section has been designed to include a range of views, including those of the IOC as well as critical scholarship, to ensure that students develop a well rounded understanding of the Olympic phenomenon. The Olympics: A Critical Reader is essential reading for students of the Olympics and Olympism, the sociology of sport, sport management and cultural studies.
