On these equal terms, such political and racial interference is rendered impotent. No story so illustrates the interaction between sport and politics as the story of Jewish athletes and the Games." "Each major event at the Games related to the Jews is covered in depth. From the first Olympics in Athens in 1896, through to the disasters and triumphs of Munich 1972 and beyond, Jews and the Olympic Games - which features a list of the more than 250 Jewish medallists at the Games and sixteen pages of pictures of Jewish athletes - is an account of the conflict between sport and politics."--Jacket.
