""Schiller and Young have looked with more care and greater acuity than any of their predecessors at all the chief actors at every level within the German government and within the Olympic movement. If that were all that they had accomplished, they would deserve unstinting admiration, but they have taken the almost unmanageable mass of information and turned it into a lively, engaging, insightful narrative, which places the Games at the very centre of modern German history.""â¿¿Allen Guttmann, author of The Olympics: A History of the Modern Games and recipient of the International Olympics Committee President's Award for historical scholarship ""The great strength of this stimulating, far-reaching book lies in its ability to excavate the uncanny proximity between the 1972 Munich Olympics and the 1936 Berlin games and between the 1972 tragedy and our own imperfect effort to somehow both ignore and fight terror.""â¿¿Peter Fritzsche, author of Life and Death in the Third Reich ""This book is nothing short of a tour de force on every conceivable level: the breadth of its topics, the depth of its research, the elegance of its writing, the acuity of its argumentation. It is a must read for anybody interested in the Olympics and sports; just as it is for those wanting to learn exquisite details and appreciate wondrous insights about German politics and society; the relationship between East and West (in Germany, Europe and the world); German-Jewish-Israeli-Arab relations; city planning; the Sixties and their legacies to mention just some salient dimensions of this immensely rich book. I remain awed by this work.""â¿¿Andrei S. Markovits, co-author of Gaming the World: How Sports are Reshaping Global Politics and Culture
