Summary
It lasted not even five years, from the spring of 1971 to the autumn of 1975. But if you were in the middle of it, the hysteria might have seemed unending. Call it an accident of history: these three men - Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier and George Foreman - converging in a single space, their five fights giving us an irreproducible pandemonium. Each stands for a kind of defiance or maybe foolishness that still make sense today. 'Bouts of Mania' shows how these three fighters provided reassurance to a shattered country that such fundamental if sometimes elusive qualities of courage and determination still mattered
