The Olympic Games are the most well-known of the various sports festivals of the ancient and modern world. They have set a precedent that is followed by many lesser known - and virtually unknown - international games intended to engage specific portions of the population. This work is an encyclopedia of 175 international games that follow a format similar to that of the modern Olympics. It begins coverage with the year 1896, the year the very first modern Olympics were held, and ends with the year 2000. The African Games, Asian Games, Deaf Games (summer and winter), European Special Olympics, Firefighters World Games, Gay Games, Goodwill Games, International Women's Games, Paralympics (summer and winter), Special Olympics (summer and winter), World Transplant Games, World Medical Games, and the X Games (summer and winter) are just a sampling of the games that are included in this exhaustive work. Complete information includes such particulars as the host city and nation, event dates, the number of participating nations and athletes, the number of sports played, lists of the participating nations and sports played, medal results, venue information, significant highlights, and various facts about the games.
