Did the 1960 Olympics mirror or even cause major changes in society? In his new book Rome 1960: The Olympics That Changed the World, David Maraniss makes the case that events from that year's Rome games reflected and accelerated the cataclysmic changes that would reverberate throughout the world in the 1960s.
