With eighteen specially commissioned and original essays written by a team of distinguished authors from the UK and overseas, it explores the historical experience of staging the Olympics from the point of view of the host city. The first of the book's three parts provides overviews of the urban impact of the four component Olympic festivals - the Summer Games, Winter Games, Cultural Olympiads and the Paralympics. The second part comprises systematic surveys of four key aspects of activity involved in staging the Olympics - finance, place promotion, managing spectacle and urban regeneration.

An afterword stresses the importance and challenge of the Olympic legacy. ...
