    "Most of what has been written in relation to the modern Olympic movement has focused on the Games or more recently on the failings (both in terms of ethics and more practically of governance) of those operating within the Olympic movement.

The book also explores contemporary concerns with youth, governance, sport for development and international relations. "--
