Morrison, Ray L.
This study gives a brief history of the United States' 1980 boycott of the Summer Olympic Games in Moscow, but focuses mainly on the government publications that grew out of that event. Section 1 provides a short history of the boycott, while section 2 centers on President Jimmy Carter and his role in the boycott, citing information gathered from speeches he made, correspondence he generated, and meetings he held in the course of the Olympic crisis. In section 3, Congress and its reaction to the boycott are examined, citing information gathered from the "Congressional Record"; major newspapers and magazines; and various resolutions, hearings, and debates. Section 4 deals with other government documents on the boycott, primarily State Department publications. Also included are four appendices: (1) a comprehensive daily schedule of events leading up to, and including, the 1980 Olympic Boycott; (2) a weekly compilation of Presidential documents on the boycott; (3) congressional resolutions relating to the Olympic Boycott (41 in all); and (4) a list of other government documents relating to the boycott.
