Through most of the Roaring '20s, Jack Dempsey was the heavyweight champion of the world. With his fierce good looks and matchless dedication to the kill, he was a fighter perfectly suited to his time.

In A Flame of Pure Fire, renowned sports writer Roger Kahn not only chronicles the thrilling, brutal bouts of the Manassa Mauler, but also illustrates how the tumultuous 1920s shaped Dempsey - and how the champ, in turn, left an indelible mark on sports and American history.

    " Jack Dempsey was the man who did for boxing what Babe Ruth did for baseball. A savage in the ring and a gentleman of rare generosity outside the ring. The golden age of sports, Ruth, Dempsey, Red Grange, Bobby Jones, Man o' War and Knute Rockne. "

    " Neat book. Would not want to face this guy in the ring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Bill | 1/1/2010

    " A great period piece - the story of Jack Dempsey - one of the first great boxers, which is as much a study of the roaring twenties, as much as a profile of one of the greatest boxers in all history. If you enjoy stories of the twenties, GET THIS. "

    " I'm reading this for research on a poem I am writing about Jack Dempsey. Great read so far! "
