London Olympics, 2012

You would have to have your head buried in the sand if you weren't aware that the 2012 Olympic Games has commenced. In honour of the occasion, Eddie Mabo Library staff have put together a small display on the first floor of the building.  Find out about the history of the ancient Olympics, and the principles underpinning the modern games. Interesting books on the display include:

Australia and the Olympic Games
Strategic Sports Event Management, Olympic Edition (also available as an ebook)
Power, Politics, and the Olympic Games
The Olympic Games: A social science perspective
Olympic Cities: 2012 and the remaking of London.

Come in and have a look.
