"Rome 1960"

In Sunday's Post, I review David Maraniss' assessment of the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome. Probably only someone who managed to do autobiographies of Bill Clinton, Roberto Clemente and Vince Lombardi could weave so adroitly the personal dramas of the athletes, the politics of the Cold War playing in the background -- as well as the internal (infernal?) Olympic bureacracies.

I recommend it.
