On October 30, 1974, in Kinshasa, Zaire, at the virtual center of Africa, two boxers, Muhammad Ali and George Foreman, were paid five million dollars apiece to confront each other in an epic match.

Norman Mailer, a commentator of unparalleled acumen, observed the titanic battle, creating a masterpiece of sportswriting with his 1975 book 'The Fight'.

Whether analyzing the fighters' moves, interpreting their characters, or weighing their competing claims on the African and American souls, Mailer was a writer of exceptional insight.

This edition of 'The Fight', introduced and abridged by Mailer scholar J. Michael Lennon, features illustrations by Neil Leifer and Howard L. Bingham, providing a dazzling tribute to The Champ and a vivid document of one of the most epic events in sporting history.
