The first of three titanic bouts between Muhammad Ali, who was just coming back to the ring after being banned over his refusal to go to Vietnam, and Joe Frazier, who needed to beat Ali to prove that he was the greatest, transcended boxing and became a battle of two views of a nation reeling from the turbulent sixties. More than a blow-by-blow recap of the fight, this book features information gleaned from interviews with scores of insiders. John Wiley & Sons
