King of the World Muhammad Ali & the Rise of an American Hero

by

King of the World Muhammad Ali & the Rise of an American Hero Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Focuses on Cassius Clay's early career from before the unexpected 1964 defeat of Sonny Liston to his refusal to be drafted to Vietnam in 1967. This is as much a social history, rooted in American popular culture, as it is a boxing biography, while the transformation into Muhammad Ali parallels the rise of the black voice. "As good a book on boxing as I have ever read" Allan Massie, "Times Literary Supplement".

Synopsis:

This evocation of the heavyweight champion and 20th-century icon concentrates on Muhammad Ali's early career, when he was still fighting as Cassius Clay. It begins with the fight between Floyd Patterson and Sonny Liston in 1962 and goes through to 1967 when Ali refused the Vietnam draft.
