The Unseen Olympic

Packed with stunning postcards and photographs from author Patrick Mylon's unrivalled collection, this sumptuous book is the definitive 'unseen' history of this grand ocean liner.

The Unseen Olympic

RMS Olympic was created during a period of intense competition between the north Atlantic shipping lines. Sister ship to the ill-fated Titanic and the all-too-briefly successful Britannic, Olympic encompassed all the qualities White Star Line was striving for in size, opulence, and luxury. Moreover, she was the only sister to enjoy a lengthy and distinguished career, including time spent as a troopship in World War I. She served as the White Star flagship from 1911 to 1935, when she was finally scrapped. This illustrated history is packed with stunning postcards, images, and memorabilia from author Patrick Mylon's unrivaled collection. Also featuring passenger lists, advertisements, menus, log abstract cards, promotional brochures, and sailing schedules, this sumptuous book presents the definitive "unseen" history of this grand ocean liner.

However, as was the fate of many liners during the conflict, her life was cut tragically short when she was suddenly wracked by a mysterious explosion on 21 November 1916 and sank in less than an hour - three times faster than her sister ...

The Unseen Britannic

As the third and largest sister of the famous Olympic-class trio, Britannic is often and unjustly overlooked in comparison to Olympic and Titanic. Launched on the eve of war in February 1914, Britannic would never see service on the White Star Line’s express service on the North Atlantic mail run for which she was built. After being requisitioned by the Admiralty in November 1915 His Majesty’s Hospital Ship Britannic instead became indispensible to the thousands of injured and sick troops that needed transporting back to Britain from the Mediterranean theatre of war. However, as was the fate of many liners during the conflict, her life was cut tragically short when she was suddenly wracked by a mysterious explosion on 21 November 1916 and sank in less than an hour – three times faster than her sister ship Titanic, and yet thanks to the improvements in safety heralded by the tragedy of her sister 1,032 of 1,062 on board survived.Here Simon Mills brings together previously unseen material, including stunning colour images of Britannic’s wreck in the Aegean Sea, and this poignant story to tell a tale of heroism in the First World War, of an oftoverlooked but key ship to British maritime history and of the unique future that the wreck might still one day enjoy.

The Upstate New York Olympics

Offers an ironic, upstate New York take on the Olympics, performance, and the risks and rewards of the creative life. This exhibition catalog documents the series of video and installation works by Tim Davis entitled The Upstate New York Olympics. Combining the artist’s ongoing interests in performance, photography, sculpture, and poetry, and by turns uncanny, bold, ridiculous, illegal, and downright dangerous, Davis’s “events” (including “Flag Pole Grapple,” “Lawn Jockey Leapfrog,” and “Stream Luge”) both document and at the same time powerfully comment on the artist’s concerns with the fundamentals of performance art, personal expression, regionalism, and the risks and rewards of the creative life.

The 1940 Tokyo Games  The Missing Olympics

By representing their experience of modernity as different from the West in their respective Olympic Games, Asian nations reveal much about the ambitions and anxieties of being an Asian host in the continuing western Olympic hegemony. This original work explores the encounter between ‘the East and the West’ by analyzing the deliberate self-presentational cultural diplomacy historically required of Asian Olympic hosts. Exploring the relationship between Modern Asia and the Olympic Games, it focuses on the forgotten history of the 1940 Tokyo Olympics to reveal the complex and fascinating encounter between Japan and the world in the 1930s. The book is the first full account of this encounter and draws substantially on Japanese sources hitherto unknown in the English-speaking world. It argues that this encounter sets the scene and the tone for later Asian involvement in the Olympic Movement. It includes chapters on: Imperial Commemoration and Diplomacy the Japanese Fascist Olympics the Event, Japanese Style the Spectre of 1940 in Later Asian Olympics. This work fills a gap in the literature, and provides an original addition to the history of Japanese culture, Asian cultures and the Olympic Movement. This book is a special issue of The International Journal of the History of Sport.

The Youth Olympic Games

The first summer Youth Olympic Games (YOG) were held in Singapore in 2010 and the first winter Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck in 2012. The IOC hopes that the YOG will encourage young people to be more active and that they will bring the Olympic movement closer to its original founding values. This is the first book to be published on the Youth Olympic Games. It critically examines the origins of the Games and the motives of the Games organisers, as well as the organisation and management of the Games and their wider impact and significance. The first part of the book discusses the relationship between the YOG and the ideology of Olympism, in the context of broader developments in youth sport competitions. The second part investigates a wide range of managerial aspects including the bidding process, finance, the prominent role of young people on the organising committees and as volunteers, the role of media and sponsors, and the distinctive competition structure. The final part of the book assesses the current and likely future impact of the YOG on the host cities and countries, the IOC and on national youth sport policies. The Youth Olympic Games is essential reading for any researcher, advanced student or policy maker with an interest in Olympic Studies, sports development, sport policy, youth sport or event management.

Olympic Act

Olympic Act is a fictional account about a CIA agent who becomes the action officer in a counter terrorism program involving biological warfare attacks against NATO and other United States interests. For the most part, the book is a first person description as though the agent was relating his actions, and his qualifications and background, to the reader. The action portion of Olympic Act is based wholly in a contemporary setting; involving the current (1999-2000) geo-political scene as it exists in the Trans-Caucasus region of the Russian Federation. The book delves into national and international political aspirations and problems; and it cites many of the inter-actions found in that environment. It specifically addresses the Russian Federation and its wants and needs to restore itself to a position of prominence and power, under Valdimir Putin. It shows interactions between the Russian Federation and the European Union; and it addresses the effects of rising Islamic political power throughout the Middle East.
