This new Rough Guide covers every aspect of Ali's life and career from the fights to the civil rights movement, from his fans to his family.

The guide looks at all 61 major contests Ali fought and his opponents from his major adversaries, Liston, Frazier and Foreman to the lesser known Jean Pierre Coopman ( the Lion of Flanders') and Ali's brother. Background is provided to the social context Ali's stand on Vietnam, his friendship with Malcolm X and his worldwide impact.
