Dr Jung Woo (Jay) Lee publishes first scholarly book on sports mega-events across whole of Asia.

Sports Mega-events in Asia is a new publication by Dr Jung Woo (Jay) Lee, academic and lecturer at Moray House School of Education and Sport, and Programme Director of MSc Sport Policy, Management and International Development.

Focusing on mega-events in sports across all of Asia, the most culturally diverse continent, this book is the first scholarly publication on this topic. This book includes the impact these events have on politics, economics, and culture - exploring the effect that traits of the host cities and countries can have on these factors.
