Beschreibung:
The topic of authority and sport opens many avenues for research on Eastern Europe. Much scholarship on the region has examined the use of sport by authoritarian regimes to promote state-building, unity, and regime authority. Through a case study of the drive to host the 1980 Olympic Games, this article explores the ways that Soviet sports administrators used international sport to promote the authority abroad of the Soviet Union and the socialist bloc during the Cold War. While Olympic successes did enhance the reputation of the Soviet Union abroad, the 1979 Soviet invasion of Afghanistan on the eve of the Moscow Olympiad, damaged Soviet authority internationally, demonstrating the limits of sports to mitigate the effects of international conflict. Recent scholarship on the region has also highlighted the limits of state control over sport and the use of sport by non-state actors to advance their own local, regional, and national agendas separate from and in some cases indirect opposition to regime goals. Considering the ways in which various actors,groups, institutions, and states of Eastern and East Central Europe have attempted touse sports in order to promote their power internally and externally, the topic of authority and sport provides many avenues for exploring power dynamics in the history of Eastern and East Central Europe.
