A behind-the-scenes look about how Los Angeles prepared to host the 1984 Summer Olympics.For five years Peter Ueberroth spearheaded the committee that oversaw the 23rd Olympiad held in Los Angeles, California. While the athletes trained, competed, and qualified, this future baseball commissioner and his committee—primarily comprised of business leaders and entrepreneurs—tackled the financial, political, and logistical problems they faced. Made in America is a detailed, behind-the-scenes look at what Ueberroth and his colleagues encountered on the road to the 1984 games. Despite the international intrigues, terrorist threats, boycotts, and financial obstacles, Ueberroth managed to make the Los Angeles Olympics an unprecedented success—and the standard for future games.
