Often seen as host nation's largest ever logistical undertaking, accommodating the Olympics and its attendant security infrastructure brings seismic changes to both the physical and social geography of its destination. Through analyzing the social and community impact of the 2012 Games and its security operation on East London, this book considers whether utopian visions of legacy can be sustained given the demands of providing a global securitised event on the magnitude of the modern Olympics.
