Redemption Song : Muhammad Ali and the Spirit of the Sixties Paperback
Shortlisted for the 1999 William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award and voted one of the twenty-five "Books to Remember 2000" by the New York Public Library.
In this timely antidote to the apolitical celebration of Muhammad Ali as 'a great American', Mike Marqusee puts the boxer back in his true historical context to explore a crucial moment at the crossroads of popular culture and mass resistance. And, in a new afterword for this second edition, he reflects on Ali's legacy in the era of the 'war on terror'.
