Very interesting book about the history of the olympics. Thus, a definitive history of the Olympic games remains to be written. Helpful and informative. Definitely recommend. One person found this helpful. Although the blurbs on the back claim this is a landmark in social and political history, it is anything but. Babe Didrickson, Billy Mills, etc are mentioned, but that's about it. Even his discussion of South Africa and the associated boycotts related to Apartheid are fractured and incomplete. but I wish I had visited the library for this one rather than spent my money on it. I recommend you do the same.
The five Olympic circles represent the five continents: Africa, North and South America, Asia and Australia. They are connected to symbolize the sports friendship amongst all the people in the world. he Olympic motto "citius, altius, fortius" means "faster, higher, stronger" in Latin. he Olympic flame burned on the shrine of Zeus during the ancient Olympic games. Today a torch is fired in the sunlight and brought to the place where the games are taking place. he first official Olympic Games took place in 776 BC, but many believe they started 5 centuries earlier.
Read this for a course on the history of the modern Olympics, but I was fairly disappointed and frustrated by this book. Oddly enough there are too many descriptions of sporting events just thrown in to balance out history based mainly in the plans and controversies of the IOC. The book largely leaves out more substantive thematic issues at the Games, including gender, race, drugs, and nationalism.
