dc.description.notesThe 2008 Beijing Olympics are likely to become one of the most controversial Games in recent memory. Perhaps not since the awarding of the Games to Moscow and the subsequent politically-motivated boycotts has a Games provoked so much debate and controversy. Ever since the International Olympic Committee announced that Beijing had won their bid, there have been consistent media stories that threaten to undermine the potential economic and social benefits to be gained from hosting the Olympics. These were enhanced around the time of the event itself as high numbers of journalists reported from the city itself. The major concerns about security, pollution, doping, and the political issues around Tibet and Darfur cast a shadow of negative publicity over the Games. A number of the world’s more important politicians refused their invitation to the opening and closing ceremonies. Some athletes spoke out against political issues. And there were protests during the period of the event by Chinese and foreign campaigners. Output Type: Book Reviewen_UK
