As the world corporate media goes Olympics mad, /Links International
Journal of Socialist Renewal/ <http://links.org.au> has assembled a
range of alternative viewpoints on what modern Olympic Games really
represent. While -- when it suits their interests -- establishment media
commentators and capitalist governments loudly proclaim that ``sport and
politics don't mix'', it soon becomes apparent that the Olympics
spectacle is drenched in politics and the promotion of the worst aspects
of dog-eat-dog capitalism. But sometimes it is also a site of struggle,
as this selection of articles, drawn from the /Links/ and /Green Left
Weekly/ <http://www.greenleft.org.au> archives, as well as other
progressive sources, reveals.
