The Olympics

For the next few days world attention will be turned to the business of the Olympic games. They are not only a series of sporting events, they are also political and historical in nature. To supplement your television viewing I recommend the following: Triumph: The Untold Story of Jesse Owens and Hitler’s Olympics by Jeremy Schaap; Munich on dvd, and When the Girls Came Out to Play: The Birth of American Sportswear by Patricia Warner. When it comes to sports, we have something for everyone.
