When Muhammad Ali died, many mourned the life of the greatest sportsman the world had ever seen. Mike Marqusee argues that Ali was not only a boxer but a remarkable political figure in a decade of tumultuous change. Playful, popular, always confrontational, Ali refashioned the role of a political activist and was central, alongside figures such as Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, to the black liberation and the anti-war movements. Marqusee shows that sport and politics were always intertwined, and this is the reason why Ali remained an international beacon of hope, long after he had left the ring.

Mike Marqusee’s books include Wicked Messenger: Bob Dylan and the 1960s, War Minus the Shooting, Anyone but England and If I Am Not for Myself. He was a regular contributor to the Guardian and wrote a fortnightly column for the Indian newspaper The Hindu.

“A beautiful book.” – Arundhati Roy  

“Fascinating, well-written, entertaining and significant. Provides rare and important insights into Muhammad Ali and his immense global impact on a turbulent and ground-breaking era.” – Leon Gast, producer of Once We Were Kings  

“A thrilling book about a true and enduring hero … Mike Marqusee has done him, and us, proud.” – John Pilger
