Prior to the 2002 Winter Olympic Games held in Salt Lake City, Utah, ten highly regarded Olympic historians presented a series of lectures on the politics, history, and controversies surrounding the winter games. Those lectures are collected in "The Winter Olympics," offering readers fascinating insights into issues of gender, amateurism, commercialism, ceremony, and more over the one hundred years of Winter Olympics history. It also includes a survey of the Salt Lake Winter Games.The only volume available that explores the winter games as a whole, "The Winter Olympics "is invaluable reading for understanding the movements roots as well as the contemporary issues surrounding the Games."
