Description


In its narrative scope, The Idealist spans two centuries, covering the 74 years of Coubertin's life -- from his birth in Pairs in 1863 to his death in Geneva in 1937. It reveals how the transformation of Paris into the capital of modernity helped fire a young man's imaginationand how the drumbeats of war sounded by the German hosts of the 1936 Berlin Olympics spoiled an old man's dreams, and left him bereft of hope for the Movement he created to foster peace among nations.
