With G4S and security for the Olympic sites in the news, it seems a good time to highlight once again our recently published book: Securing and Sustaining the Olympic City.
‘This is a very interesting interdisciplinary study of the security construction for the London 2012 Olympic Games, which enriches the nascent field of Olympic Security. Its documented analysis of the serious “glocal” security processes and their social impacts are very important and useful not only for the London Olympic City’s specific case, but for all future Olympics and sporting mega-events.’ Minas Samatas, University of Crete, Greece
Securing and Sustaining the Olympic City is written by Pete Fussey, (University of Essex, UK), Jon Coaffee, (University of Birmingham UK), Gary Armstrong, (Brunel University, UK) and Dick Hobbs, (University of Essex, UK), and it explores the logistical issues of both developing and securitizing the Olympic neighbourhood in Stratford, East London.
