Sexual Diversity and the Sochi 2014 Olympics by Helen Jefferson Lenskyj Sexual Diversity and the Sochi 2014 Olympics, Hardback (February 2014)

This book examines Russia's 2013 anti-gay laws and their implications for the Sochi 2014 Olympics. Lenskyj argues that Putin's Russia and the International Olympic Committee wield power in similar ways, as evident in undemocratic governance, fraudulent voting processes, hypocrisy and absence of accountability.

Gender Politics and the Olympic Industry by Helen Jefferson Lenskyj Gender Politics and the Olympic Industry, Hardback (October 2012)

This book explores how the Olympic industry has shaped hegemonic concepts of sporting masculinities and femininities for its own profit and image-making ends, examining its continuing marginalization of athletes on account of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and class.
