Muhammad Ali first came into the public eye when as Cassius Clay, he won a gold medal at the Olympics in Rome in 1960.
He would become the greatest boxer the world has ever seen but at the height of his career, at a critical turning point in the history of America. He was prepared to take political stance that nearly ruined his career.
This book charts the life of this fascinating and complex man through a series of amazing action photographs, as well as powerful and intimate images of Ali at rest or on the public stage.
While the photographs shot during the fights show the raw power, athleticism and skill of the fighter they are balanced by portrayals of his humanity and wit.
