Chronicle of the Olympics, [1896-1996].

This comprehensive history captures the human drama played out over a century of Olympic Games. It offers a close-up look at triumphs and disappointments -- from Jesse Owens' four gold medal wins at the 1936 Berlin Games to Ben Johnson being stripped of his 100-meter gold at the 1988 Seoul Games. This updated edition includes coverage of Atlanta 1996, plus a preview of the 1998 Games in Nagano, Japan, and the Olympics in Sydney, Australia, in the year 2000.
