Bidding for the Olympic Games : an anatomy of arguments / Douglas Booth

Booth, Douglas

In this article, the author draws on the philosopher of history Hayden White's typology of arguments to explain different accounts of bidding for the Olympic Games. White's typology helps explain the irreconcilable disconnect between representations of bidding for and hosting the Olympic Games put forward by the International Olympic Committee and its academic supporters in Olympic education, on the one hand, and their critics, on the other.
