About the Author
What People are Saying About This
Few human enterprises blend light and darkness quite so much as the Olympics, where international cooperation and nationalistic fervor do battle in a five-ring circus. The 1984 Winter Games in Sarajevo were a profoundly double-edged spectacle. The lively writing of Jason Vuic re-lights the torch for all of us in a colorful remembrance of the best and the worst of what the Olympics can be.
An impressively researched and deftly narrated tale of an unexpectedly delightful Winter Games whose legacy survives the dark, destructive days that followed. The definitive account of Sarajevo 1984.
