Muhammad Ali Black Superman from the Author: Markus Jodl. Muhammad Ali wird heute zumeist als charismatischer Ex-Champion beschrieben, der sich unvergessliche Boxkampfe geliefert hat und "im gleichen Atemzuge gegen gesellschaftliche Probleme wie Rassismus und Vietnamkrieg ins Feld gezogen ist" (Munzinger Archiv). Aber dieses Bild ist falsch: Ali war kein Martin-Luther-King-in-Boxhandschuhen. Jodl zeichnet in seinem Buch den Lebensweg von Muhammad Ali von der Kindheit in Louisville bis heute nach und setzt sich dabei kritisch mit der Ali-Legende auseinander. Sichtbar wird ein Mensch, der ein grossartiger Boxer und wunderbarer Showman war, aber auch ein Narzisst, Provokateur, Rassist, Opportunist und Chauvinist. Das Buch bietet ausserdem kurze Portrats von Alis wichtigsten Gegnern, eine Aufstellung seiner Profikampfe und Listen mit allen lieferbaren Buchern, Videos und DVDs sowie eine Sammlung mit interessanten Websites rund um den "Grossten." Die Listen werden auf der Website www.blacksuperman.de regelmassig aktualisi

Muhammad Ali from the Author: Thomas Hauser. A sweeping biography of one of the greatest and most provocative athletes of all time—“a life that needs to be understood whether you care a whit about boxing or not” (The Boston Globe). Athlete, activist, rebel, poet, legend—Muhammad Ali stood larger than life in the imagination of hundreds of millions of people around the world. A gold medalist at the 1960 Olympics, he won the heavyweight championship at age twenty-two by conquering Sonny Liston in dramatic fashion. In the weeks after the upset victory, he confirmed his membership in the Nation of Islam and told reporters he would no longer answer to his “slave name”: Cassius Clay. The political establishment stripped him of his heavyweight title when he refused induction into the United States Army during the height of the war in Vietnam. Ultimately, Ali returned to reclaim his crown, prevailing in epic fights against the likes of Joe Frazier and George Foreman. His talent and charisma—and above all, his adherence to principle—made him a cultural icon and one of the most beloved sporting figures of all time. But that is only half the tale. Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times is also the story of Ali, the man. Author Thomas Hauser got closer to Ali than any previous biographer. His work—told in Ali’s own words and those of hundreds of family members, friends, rivals, and others who interacted with “The Greatest” over the decades—reveals a deeply spiritual, complex man, whose public and private battles, including his struggle against the devastating effects of Parkinson’s disease, gave new meaning to the word courage and changed forever our conception of what makes a champion. Heralded by the New York Times as “the first definitive biography of the boxer who transcended sports as no other athlete ever has,” Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand the legacy of one of the twentieth century’s most charismatic and controversial superstars. This enhanced ebook includes rare video footage, audio clips, and photos authorized by Muhammad Ali Enterprises.

Egypt In The Reign Of Muhammad Ali from the Author: Afaf Lutfi Sayyid-Marsot. This account of Egyptian society in the reign of Muhammad Ali traces the beginnings of the nation state in Egypt. It considers Muhammad Ali as part of a social group whose economic interests led them in the direction of trade with Europe as a means of raising money for further investments. They attempted to increase agricultural exports and to use the profits to create industry; then, following the logic of imperialists, their next step was to seek to conquer the surrounding areas to find markets for their industries and sources of raw materials. These policies brought them into conflict with their suzerain, the Ottoman sultan, and with England, since England needed markets in the Middle East. England sought to destroy the new regime in Egypt as a means of exerting influence on the region. In carrying out these economic changes, the country underwent a series of internal developments that were to revolutionize the structure and shape of Egyptian society. The rules of landownership were altered and large estates were formed, Egyptian fallahin were drafted into the army, and the administration was Egyptianized, establishing the groundwork for a nation state.

Written with objectivity, the book opens with a background chapter on the birth and early life of the Prophet in Mecca. Dr. Watt tells of Muhammad's struggle to make his way as an untrained orphan in the city's commercial world, and his call to prophethood as a result of visions.
