Abstract

"London 2012: How Was It For Us?" Mark Perryman. Lawrence and Wishart. June 2013. --- The memories of the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics will remain with us forever, but what did those four weeks tell us about ourselves, our society’s values and its possibilities? This collection of critical reflections aims to address the reality of the Games’ impact, question what the ceremonies and Team GB represented, and deconstruct the organisers’ claims of economic regeneration and boosting participation. Lindsay Harris finds this an important and enjoyable read.
