Reporting The Olympic Year


Author Info

Registered author(s):


    This paper discusses if the Olymipic Games presented a change- not change along the lines of South Koreas leap towards democracy after the Seol Olympics, but some small shift- and how the nature of its Communist rulers dictated its behaviour and its reaction to its events. The author also look at its calculation that modest tactical concessions over policy- towards the Dalai Lama or Dafur- must take second place to stratagic choices made by the Party rulers to retain tight control, be it of the Internet or of their temporary protest parks.[AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL UNIVERSITY]
