“Some time ago, William Dunn (1981: 8–19) argued that “the study of public policy is as old as Plato’s concern for The Republic” (as paraphrased by McCool 1995: 1). But even long before ancient philosophers, people had been trying to solve conflicts between interests and ways of satisfying them intuitively, on the fly. Albeit many armed conflicts arose, other struggles were, fortunately, solved peacefully.”

“The presented monograph brings both a comparative analysis and a synthesized view on the development of sport, mainly of the Olympic movement, in the so called Visegrad countries. It focuses mainly on the position and role of sport in the development of the totalitarian regimes of the Central Europe.”
