Sarah Brodsky Berkeley Political Review Final Preparation or Paranoia: the 2008 Olympic Games The Olympic Games have always been considered a binding force in the world, bringing  even the fiercest of enemies together to share an ancient tradition. The Games are held every four  years and bring in champion competitors from all over the world together to participate in some  of the most intense sporting matches known. The XXIX Olympic Games are going to be held in  one of the four capitals of China, Beijing. While many nations talk of the 2008 Olympics as  bringing Democracy and world standing to China, Olympic officials are thinking of the Games in  a very different light.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
