Mega-Events and Social Change

Spectacle, Legacy and Public Culture

Maurice Roche

Published by Manchester University Press

Globalizing Sport Studies

Contemporary mega-events like Olympics and Expos, together with the organisations which control them, can be risky and controversial projects. This book interprets how they reflect, but also mark and influence, deeper social changes in each of the three social spheres of the media, cities and global geopolitics.
