Summary:
"The Berlin Olympic Games have their 70th anniversary in 2006. Hitler's Olympics creates a vivid account of the disputes, personalities and events of what was one of the largest propaganda exercises in history. The success of black American Owens allowed the Nazis to claim that their policies were not racist--and it was the Americans who were accused of anti-semitism."--BOOK JACKET.
