The Olympic Games are a phenomenon of unparalleled global proportions.

The nine essays here investigate the influence, struggles, and contributions of Latin American and Caribbean societies. By delving into nationalist political movements, post-revolutionary diplomacy, decolonization struggles, gender and disability discourses, and more, they define how the nations of this region have shaped and been shaped by the Olympic Movement.
