The "Handbook of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games" is an authoritative and comprehensive account of the world's greatest sporting and cultural event.

Written by a world-class team of international Olympic scholars, the volumes offer analysis of the full social, cultural, political, historical, economic and sporting context of the Games. From the political, commercial and structural complexities of organising an event on such a scale, to the sporting action that holds the attention of the world, they illuminates every aspect of the 2012 Games, helping us to better understand the vital role that sport and culture play in contemporary global society.
