About this title:

Synopsis: For the last half-century, the East Asian nations have been as crucial to the Olympic movement as the Olympic Games have been significant to the East Asian nations. Each time the Games have returned to Asia, the region has loomed larger and larger on the world stage, and the Olympics themselves have vastly increased in magnitude. This book explores the powerful mutual influence between the Olympic movement and the nations of East Asia. Cities and countries vie fiercely for the right to host the Games and attempt to add their own special flavor and themes to their venue. National sport federations and national media always threaten to turn the Games into contests for national prestige. The book analyzes how the various Asian-site Olympic Games have been important for the capital-city development, national politics and nationalist sentiments, and the inter-regional relations of Japan, South and North Korea, China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
