Synopsis: The Olympic Games are one of the most watched sporting events on the planet. It has made world-famous celebrities out of its most successful athletes, including Michael Phelps, Mark Spitz, Carl Lewis, Nadia Comăneci, Apolo Anton Ohno, Bruce Jenner, Kerri Strug, Nancy Kerrigan, and Usain Bolt. But the term "Olympic Movement" is foreign to all but devoted followers of the Olympics. Basically, the Olympic Movement is an attempt to bring all the nations of the world together in a series of multi-sport festivals, and it seeks to use sport as a means to promote internationalism and peace.

The fourth edition of the Historical Dictionary of the Olympics presents a comprehensive history of the games from the first recorded history of the games in 776 B.C. to the present day. This is done through a chronology, forewords by Dan Jansen and Mike Krzyzewski, an introductory essay, appendixes, a bibliography, photos, and over 900 cross-referenced dictionary entries covering the history, philosophy, and politics of the Olympics and, of course, the medal winners. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about the Olympics.

About the Author: Ian Buchanan is a founding member and Past-President of the International Society of Olympic Historians (ISOH), a member of the British Society of Sports History, and the Association of Track & Field Statisticians. Bill Mallon is an orthopedic surgeon, whose life-long interest in the Olympic Games became a second career. This is his eighth book on the Olympic Games. He is a co-founder and President of the International Society of Olympic Historians and edits the ISOH journal, "Citius, Altius, Fortius".
