When Knight stepped down 12 years later in 2009, construction on a stunning new 23,000 capacity community stadium was well underway and the club had won three promotions in four seasons.

Muhammad Ali In Perspective

By Hauser, Thomas with the Cooperation of Muhammad Ali

San Francisco: Collins, 1996. A near Fine unmarked copy. A large format volume of 176 pages. Illustrated throughout with photographs. Foreword by Muhammad Ali. It wasn't easy doing what Ali did in Atlanta. But this is a man who, all his life has come up with one incredibly gutsy performance after another. There was no wy he could beat Sonny Liston. So he went out and beat Sonny Liston. There was no way he would give up his title. So as an act of principle he gave up the heavyweight championship of the world. He beat George Foreman, when everyone knew he couldn't. He won the heavyweight crown for a third time, against Leon Spinks, when he was too old to win. Each time the world thought Ali was out of miracles, he performed another miracle. That's Muhammad Ali, In Perspective: and what you had in Atlanta was a wonderful reaffirmation of just how much Muhammad Ali means to the world. Three billion people were watching. Three billion people were in love with one man. Three billion people, even if it was just for a moment, had all the hate and petty prejudices removed from their hearts, and felt nothing but love. That's a miracle. PLEASE NOTE: A HEAVY VOLUME OF 0.96 KILO UNPACKED WEIGHT WHICH MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL SHIPPING COST 1. First Edition. Soft Cover. Near Fine/No Jacket. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
