Book review

SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, RICH O'BRIEN Rozen spins an engaging account of events leading up to the bout and of the fight itself. Far more compelling, though, are the scores of images he has collected. There are photographs of Johnson and Jeffries in training, as well as riveting shots of the brutal action in the ring. One particularly striking photo shows Johnson, relaxed and grinning, as he manhandles the battered Jeffries. More startling, however, are a number of racist cartoons- including several by Rube Goldberg- which, in their depiction of Johnson, convey far more effectively than any narrative the appalling bigotry of the era. ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY EDITORIAL DIRECTOR, PETER BONVENTRE A stunning pictorial history of the Jack Johnson- Jim Jeffries heavyweight title fight. The archival photos in this book are just amazing. ANTIQUITIES OF THE PRIZERING, HARRY SHAFFER The book is not only beautifully put together with a number of truly rare images, but it is well researched and well written. WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY, EARL SMITH, PhD, DEPT. OF SOCIOLOGY It was a most enjoyable read. It was more than simply a pictorial history but, more so, a social history of a period in U.S. History that needs to be retold with each successive generation. UNITYFIRST.COM The Johnson-Jeffries contest, "The Fight Of The Century", polarized the country and the author Wayne A. Rozen easily makes the case for its importance in American history.
