Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0751305421, Hardcover)

Published to include the Winter Olympics and featuring over 750 photographs by top sports journalists, this book brings to life every summer and winter Olympic Games since Athens, 1896. The reader is able to witness the triumphs and disappointments - Jesse Owen's four gold medal wins at the 1936 Berlin Games; Mark Spitz winning seven golds at the 1972 Munich Games and Ben Johnson being stripped of his 100 metres gold at the 1988 Seoul Games. There is an account of the sensational atmosphere of 1984 Los Angeles Games and the controversial clenched-fist salutes of the American "Black Power" athletes of the 1968 Mexico Games. This book also features an appendix listing all the events and medallists since the beginning of the Games.
