Christopher Robert Hill (born August 10, 1952) is an American diplomat who is currently the Chief Advisor to the Chancellor for Global Engagement and Professor of the Practice in Diplomacy at the University of Denver. Prior to this position, he was the Dean of the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University, a position he held from September 2010 to December 2017.

Christopher R. Hill begins by explaining why politics have always been central to the Olympic movement, and by investigating who holds power within it, how it is financed and how the costly process of bidding for the games works. He then covers the Olympics' recent history: the Cold War games of Moscow 1980 and Los Angles 1984; Seoul 1988, a highly successful PR exercise by the Korean government: and Barcelona 1992, arguably the most commercial and televisual games in history.

Olympic Politics book. Hill, formerly Senior Lecturer in Politics at the University of York, is now a Visiting Fellow at Chichester Institute of Higher Education.

This is a study of the Olympic Games in political terms, examining the history of the Games from their revival by Baron de Couberin, himself a political animal, in the 1890s through the cities and turbulent national and international issues that have shaped them, to speculation on their future. The author emphasizes the inter-relationship between national attitudes to competitive, world-scale sport and political events and processes, calling upon examples of such issues as apartheid in South Africa, the division of the Korean peninsula and the two Germanies. At the same time, he argues that countries often engage in such contests as bidding for the right to hold the Games in one of their cities for reasons quite unconnected with sport. The books ends by posing questions about the "gigantism" of the Games and queries whether they have outgrown their usefulness.
