Abstract

Sports activist and writer Mark Perryman presents a sharply critical take on the way the London Olympic Games have been organized, and provides what he sees as a blueprint for how they could be improved. The London Olympics have been promoted as of great benefit for the host city and nation, but will they deliver on legacy and sustainability promises? Rebecca Litchfield considers Perryman’s plans for how the Games can be made more inclusive and exciting to watch. Why the Olympics Aren’t Good for Us, And How They Can Be. Mark Perryman. OR Books. July 2012.
