Publication Date: 1972

Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: Fine

Dust Jacket Condition: Fine


Beautiful hardcover edition in Fine condition in A dust jacket in Fine condition, shiny, price intact dj ($7.95). This book is in collectible condition, scarce book especially in this condition. Only thing from a mint condition is a tiny spot of vague soiling on ffep. From the inside flap --- ".Mr.Johnson sees the worldof sports from a highly individualistic viewpoint that is as convincing as it is unorthodox. He purpose here is to strip away the phony myths, the self-righteous virtues of the Games and reveal them for what they really have become---the political and commercial playthings of international diplomacy, the ego-satisfying pawns of an elitist group of men whose platitudes have become institutional gospel." He covers the Berlin Olympics, the Tokyo Games, the Mexico Games, and the Munich Games. He is mostly interested in the athletes themselves, in their own words for the majority of the book.
