Sinopsis: This surprising book has an absolute wealth of data on Olympic Judo from 1964 to 1988. The photos are first rate, with many excellent examples of dynamic Judo being shown. Each chapter covers a different Olympic year… with detailed coverage of the more interesting matches. Who was favored, and why… what the upsets were, and reasons for various rule changes down through the years. In the appendix, it gives the results of each and every match. This book is historically valuable. I think that it is out-of-print, but as it’s fairly recent, you should still be able to find a copy at a low price. For those interested in the historical development of Olympic Judo, and how it changed Judo worldwide, this book would be invaluable.
