Das schillernde Leben der Boxlegende ganz neu erzählt Muhammad Ali – drei Mal unumstrittener Boxweltmeister – ist eine der schillerndsten Figuren des 20. Jahrhunderts, seine Geschichte verknüpft mit den großen politischen und kulturellen Konflikten seiner Zeit. Für viele ist er ein Symbol für den Kampf für Freiheit und gegen Unterdrückung. Dem Menschen hinter dieser Heldensaga sind wir jedoch nie nahe gekommen. Der Bestsellerautor und Sportlerbiograph Jonathan Eig erzählt dieses außergewöhnliche Leben auf der Basis bisher unbekannter Quellen noch einmal neu. Der »echte Ali« war Pazifist und Boxer, Muslim und treuloser Ehemann, ein Schwarzer, der zum Symbol für den Kampf gegen Rassismus aufstieg, aber seinesgleichen demütigte – ein Leben voller Brüche und Widersprüche.

Über den Stil des Boxers Muhammad Ali

Sein Mythos ist rund um den Globus verbreitet. Sein Gesicht ist eines der bekanntesten der Welt. Er ist der größte Boxer aller Zeiten und eine faszinierende Persönlichkeit, so charismatisch wie charmant und prahlerisch. "Muhammad Ali hat Liston, Frazier, Foreman und eine Gesellschaft besiegt, die einen selbstbewussten afroamerikanischen Sportler nicht ertragen konnte", sagt Jan Philipp Reemtsma, der in seinem Essay den dreimaligen Weltmeister im Schwergewicht, den tänzelnden Boxästhet, großspurigen Schreihals, schwarzen Rebell und zum Islam konvertierten Kriegsdienstverweigerer beschreibt. Dieses Buch ist eine "Art Philologie des Fernsehens", schreibt Jochen Hieber in der Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung, denn Reemtsma hat Alis wichtigste Kämpfe wie in Zeitlupe nachgezeichnet, seine "Strategie und Taktik, die Finessen und Finten" - er hat seine Choreographie des Siegens interpretiert. Alis Kämpfe, seine Persönlichkeit und die offensive Behauptung, er sei das, was Afroamerikaner nicht sein sollten - gutaussehend, selbstbewusst, großspurig -, machten ihn zu einer wichtigen Figur für die amerikanische Bürgerrechtsbewegung und später zu einem international anerkannten Symbol des Geistes der Freiheit. Muhammad Ali war mehr als ein Boxchampion. Er war ein Meister archaischer Gewalt und ein Held unserer modernen Gesellschaft - in seinem neuen Nachwort beschreibt Jan Philipp Reemtsma wie das zusammenpasst. Diese Ausgabe enthält zusätzlich ein Hörporträt über Muhammad Ali, Laufzeit 22:47 min, gesprochen von Bernd Rauschenbach, Joachim Kersten und Jan Philipp Reemtsma.

Chronicling the legacy of boxing’s biggest names—including the great Muhammad Ali—and their impact on “the sweet science,” Knockout: The Art of Boxing pays tribute to Ken Regan’s incomparable photography and coverage of the sport. Ken Regan was a young photographer in 1964 when he covered Muhammad Ali’s first fight: his historic victory over Sonny Liston in Miami Beach. Afterward, the young photographer embarked on a lifelong love affair with the sport of boxing. For the next four decades, Regan chronicled the greatest fights and the greatest fighters of the age. His extraordinary photographs include many of the most enduring images ever created in the history of boxing, as well as portraits of notable trainers, managers, promoters, writers, and the whole panoply of celebrities associated with the sport. Featuring some of the greatest ring action in boxing history, Knockout: The Art of Boxing takes us from sparring sessions and press conferences to weigh-ins and post-fight sessions. Knockout also features Regan’s compelling stories and firsthand account of his amazing photographic journey into the heart of boxing. Beginning with his early magazine work shooting prizefights, and throughout the following decades, Regan developed close personal friendships with some of the world’s greatest boxers. Regan captures intimate moments showing fighters with their families at home and on the road. With black-and-white and color photography that captures the art of boxing in its purest form, Knockout is one of the most celebrated books ever published on the sport, and a fitting tribute to "The Greatest" boxer of all time, Muhammad Ali.

"I am the greatest! I am the king!" Muhammad Ali was one of the most electrifying, inspiring, and confrontational athletes of his generation. At the height of his boxing career, Ali was as despised as he was adored. Loud and aggressive as well as confident and dedicated, he was the quintessential showman, the undeniable champion of his sport, and one of the most recognizable faces in the world. He was challenged at every turn: faced with racial discrimination in his everyday life, mocked by the sports media as his career began, ridiculed for adopting a new religion, and stripped by the U.S. government of his very livelihood for refusing to go to war. Muhammad Ali faced the obstacles in his life the way he faced his opponents in the ring, brashly and with all the force at his command. In his private life, he was also deeply spiritual, committed to standing up against social injustice, and steadfast in his beliefs. Featuring stunning illustrations and covering his entire life from childhood through his professional career to his end of life battle with Parkinson's Syndrome, this is a moving tribute to the legacy of this impressive figure.

Formulaic ways to train students in composition and rhetoric are no longer effective, say authors Robert L. Davis and Mark F. Shadle. Scholar-teachers must instead reinvent the field from the inside. Teaching Multiwriting: Researching and Composing with Multiple Genres, Media, Disciplines, and Cultures presents just such a reinvention with multiwriting, an alternative, open approach to composition. Seeking to open the minds of both writers and readers to new understandings, the authors argue for the supplanting of the outdated research paper assignment with research projects that use multiple forms to explore questions that cannot be fully answered. This innovative volume, geared to composition teachers at all levels, includes sixteen helpful illustrations and provides classroom exercises and projects for each chapter.
