The recent the growth of rampant commercialization of the Olympic Games and the related scandals, appear to have distorted the principles espoused by the Baron de Coubertin, the founder of their modern revival. The author argues that the modern Olympic movement never was an innocent forum of international athletic expression. He arrays a wealth of evidence that its organizers often permitted the games to be coopted by a variety of (often brutal) agendas that contradicted its stated, founding values. Includes an extensive bibliography. "This well-written book is exhaustively documented and includes interesting photographs of people and events described . . . [it] is a unique and significant work essential for serious students of international sport." -Choice United States Olympic Committee Award of Olympic Book of the Year (1987).
