The CWG 2010 is undoubtedly India’s best chance to emerge as a serious sporting nation. But, as the capital city of Delhi prepares for its moment in the international spotlight, there are questions that loom large, unasked and ominous: Who will emerge the winner in this contest to present Delhi as a truly global city? How much is it costing the person on the street? Who has actually benefited from all the digging and windowdressing? And whose livelihoods, dreams, perhaps even lives, have been lost? With access to hitherto unused Commonwealth archives, primary documents from the first-ever British Empire Games in 1930 to the present, and confidential material relating to the Delhi 2010 Games, this book is the first and only attempt to place the history of the Commonwealth Games in perspective and understand the Delhi Games in its entirety.
