David Maraniss talked about his book Rome 1960: The Olympics That Changed the World, published by Simon and Schuster. In the book he looks at the convergence of sports, race, and the Cold War. Included are the experiences of boxer Cassius Clay, sprinter Wilma Rudolph, decathlete Rafer Johnson, and others. The 1960 Olympics were the first commercially televised Summer Games, so the images of both the East and West were important to their leaders then, at the height of the Cold War.

David Maraniss is an associate editor at The Washington Post. He won a Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting in 1993. His previous books include They Marched Into Sunlight: War and Peace Vietnam and America October 1967; First in His Class: The Biography of Bill Clinton; and The Clinton Enigma; as well as biographies of sports legends Vince Lombardi and Roberto Clemente. close
