Call Number: Electronic book available on Ebrary (click the cover)
ISBN: 9781607105695

Muhammad Ali was one of the greatest champions of all time. His boxing skills were unparalleled, and his words have never been forgotten. From his birth in 1942 in Louisville, Kentucky to his first Golden Gloves win to the Rumble in the Jungle and the Thrilla in Manila, Ali: The Official Portrait of "The Greatest" of All Time is a complete and fascinating exploration of the man whose legendary motto was "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee." From Ali's conversion to Islam to his opposition to the Vietnam War to his later days, every aspect of the fighter's life is illustrated with beautiful, full-color photos. With iconic quotes from Ali inserted throughout the text, this is Ali from every angle, the official portrait of a man whose will was stronger than anyone's.

Playing Tough : The World of Sports and Politics - Roger I. Abrams
Call Number: GV706.35/A37/2013 (on the 3rd floor)
ISBN: 9781555537531
Publication Date: 2013-05-14
Playing Tough is an entertaining and thoroughly enlightening look at the unique and surprisingly outsized role that sports have played in politics and history. Ever since the bread and circuses of Rome, sports have been used as a tool to entertain the masses and to instill civic pride. Abrams shows both the positive and the negative ways in which sports and politics have coalesced, from the rabid nationalism of the 1936 Nazi Olympics, the political grudge match of the Louis and Schmeling fights, and the "futbol war" between Honduras and Costa Rica to the inspiring stories of South Africa's rugby nation-building and Muhammad Ali's brave antiwar stance, which nearly cost him his career. Abrams is an informed and impassioned writer who chronicles the profoundly creative and destructive influence that sports have on the political life of our nation and the world. This book will be of interest to any and all sports and politics enthusiasts and is a wonderful introduction for course creation and adoption.

The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century : A Social Justice Hall of Fame - Peter Dreier
Call Number: Electronic book available on CREDO Reference (click the cover)
ISBN: 9781568586816
Publication Date: 2012-06-26
A hundred years ago, any soapbox orator who called for women's suffrage, laws protecting the environment, an end to lynching, or a federal minimum wage was considered a utopian dreamer or a dangerous socialist. Now we take these ideas for granted-- because the radical ideas of one generation are often the common sense of the next. We all stand on the shoulders of earlier generations of radicals and reformers who challenged the status quo of their day. Unfortunately, most Americans know little of this progressive history. It isn't taught in most high schools. You can't find it on the major television networks. In popular media, the most persistent interpreter of America's radical past is Glenn Beck, who teaches viewers a wildly inaccurate history of unions, civil rights, and the American Left. The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century, a colorful and witty history of the most influential progressive leaders of the twentieth century and beyond, is the perfect antidote.
