In order to discuss the situation of the bay – Rio de Janeiros postcard symbol and venue for the regattas of the Olympic Games 2016 - the journalist Emanuel Alencar has searched for references in over more than 30 publications, among them papers, reports and scientific articles, and a dozen of interviews with researchers, environmental activists, fishermen, managers and civil servants. The result is a book rich in data, maps and information that shows that the Olympic Games passed without fulfilling one of its important promises: the clean-up of the bay.
