Pelham, 1988, Hardback in Dustwrapper..

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Jahangir Khan is a true phenomenon. Nobody has ever dominated his sport so comprehensively over such a long period. During a winning sequence of over five hundred matches, he demolished and demoralised the finest players in the game. He has won six World Open championships and seven consecutive British Open championships and is the current holder of both titles. This book not only celebrates and analyses his achievements, it tells the story of a dynasty that is unique in sporting history. The Khan family has produced an unbroken chain of world class players and coaches — Jahangir’s father, Roshan, a British Open champion; his uncle, Nasrullah, coach supreme; his brother Torsam, who collapsed on court during a tournament and later died; and his cousin Rahmat, coach, mentor and friend, who masterminded Jahangir’s playing career at the sacrifice of his own. Part of the family, too, are the legendary Hashim, Azam and Mohibullah. Lavishly illustrated and written with the sweep of a novel, this book will have a readership that goes well beyond the narrow confines of the squash world. Jahangir and the Khan Dynasty shows what can be attained by a combination of talent, dedication, faith and family pride.”
