Product Details


“A beautiful book.”
—Arundhati Roy

“One of the most important—and influential—pieces of sportswriting in the last thirty years. There is no better example of how to use sports as a radical lens to understand politics.”
—Dave Zirin, from the foreword

“Fascinating, well-written, entertaining and significant. Redemption Song 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

“Among the slew of recent Ali books, here’s one that returns the political sting to ‘The Greatest’ … As Marqusee portrays him, Ali is still the righteous outlaw, as badass as ever and still in the eye of a global storm.”
Time Out New York

“Excellent … Reminds us just how explosive and divisive a figure Ali was.”
Independent on Sunday

“As Marqusee charts how Ali helped create a global consciousness, he succeeds in knocking Ali off the respectable pedestal on which American culture had placed him, resurrecting him as the radical figure he truly was … a vibrant historical essay.”
