More Than a Champion: The Style of Muhammad Ali

By Reemtsma, Jan Philipp

NY: Knopf, 1998. Book. Fine. Boards. 1st U.S. Edition Stated.. 173 pp., notes, bibilography, index, appendix list of Ali's fights. Close to new, no markings, a bit of light soil on the white dust jacket. Translated from German by John E. Woods. Reemtsma, director of the Hamburg Institute of Social Research, offers insights into how Ali the man came to reflect many of our own deep, often disturbing, cultural patterns. This virtuoso essay takes as its narrative framework the legendary Ali vs. Joe Frazier fight in Manila in 1975, which the authors follows in three-round sections. Amid these summaries are much wider ranging sections exploring the choreography that Ali crafted for his greatest title bouts, how he created a style that became its own myth, how he then came to have to act that style in the ring, and its damaging consequences. Reemtsma also provides portraits of Ali's opponents: Sonny Liston, George Foreman, Ken Norton, and, above all, Joe Frazier. A young Ali in boxer stance is depicted on the dust jacket. Size: 8vo -- 8.25 in..
