What did the Olympics tell us about ourselves, our society's values and its possibilities? in this new collection of critical reflections on the Games, contributors imaginatively address the reality of their impact. They question what the ceremonies and Team GB represented; explore the meanings and experience of 2012's summer of sport for both participants and spectators; and interrogate the organizers claims of economic regeneration, sustainability and boosting participation. This is an essential and exciting read for all who understand and appreciate that London 2012 meant something - but are unsure what. Contributors include world-class experts in Olympism, writers and journalists who reported on and were inspired by the Games, social and cultural critics, sports policy consultants and sport campaigners.
