The modern Olympic Games have survived boycotts, wars and terrorism to become a massive, global media event. This book traces the history of the Games, featuring controversies such as the 1936 Berlin Olympics and the 1980 Moscow Games, where 60 countries boycotted the event as a protest against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
