About this book

This volume offers a panoramic and interdisciplinary view of the growing field of Sports Mega-Event studies. Contributions explore leveraging strategies and the legacies from previous sports megas (London, Seoul, Sydney, Vancouver) and recent and future 'emerging' states and their hosting strategies (India, China, Qatar, Russia, Brazil).

Reviews

"International sports mega-events and their legacies are much debated features of contemporary culture. In this book many of the main writers in the field provide valuable new and accessible studies of this phenomenon. This book deserves to be widely read." -Maurice C. Roche, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, University of Sheffield, UK
