“The Manly Art” tells the story of boxing’s origins and the sport’s place in American culture. First published in 1986 and revised in 2010, this book was lauded by the Journal of Sport History as “a book of great insight and intellectual depth” and “a pure delight” and by the Chicago Sun-Times a “first-rate social history rendered in felicitous prose.”
With a running time of 9 hours and 43 minutes, it’s “an exciting narrative history of boxing and . . . the whole of nineteenth-century American culture” (The Nation).
