The "Handbook of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games" is an authoritative and comprehensive account of the world s greatest sporting and cultural event. It tells the complete story of the 2012 Games from inception, through the successful bidding process and the planning and preparation phase, to delivery, the post-Games period and legacy. Written by a world-class team of international Olympic scholars, the book offers analysis of the full social, cultural, political, historical, economic and sporting context of the Games. From the political, commercial and structural complexities of organising an event on such a scale, to the sporting action that holds the attention of the world, this book illuminates every aspect of the 2012 Games, helping us to better understand the vital role that sport and culture play in contemporary global society.

The book is divided into two volumes. "Volume One: Making the Games, " examines the build-up to London 2012, covering key topics such as:

  • the bidding process
  • planning and decision making
  • financing the Games
  • developing the infrastructure
  • engaging national and international governing bodies of sport
  • engaging the UK public
  • engaging a global public
  • developing a legacy programme
  • the Cultural Olympiad.

Richly illustrated with the personal accounts of key stakeholders, from sports administrators and politicians to athletes and spectators, and including essential data and evocative visual material, this book is essential reading for anybody with a personal or professional interest in the Olympic and Paralympic Games, global culture or the development of sport.
