dc.description.abstractThis book is a welcome addition to the literature around hosting mega sporting events with a case-study focus on the London 2012 Olympic Games. The book is largely framed within urban policy and sociology studies, and the complementary disciplines of sport sociology, sport management, and also sport development feature on an implicit basis. The organisational framework of the text is well thought through and there are contributions from leading authors in the two parent disciplines. The book is not intended primarily for a philosophical audience, however, it does discus ethically relevant material – vis a vis –the ‘economic regeneration’ and ‘legacy’ narratives of bidding for, and hosting the Olympic games. The reader will not find any substantive ethical theory nor penetrative conceptual analysis of key themes like Olympism; but they will find engaging empirically informed critique of the post 2012 period, with a large focus on social justice.
