Product description

Since his release from prison in 1990, Nelson Mandela has emerged as the world's most significant moral leader since Gandhi. As president of the African National Congress and spiritual figurehead of the anti-apartheid movement, he was instrumental in moving South Africa towards black-majority rule. He is revered throughout the world as a vital force for human rights and racial equality. Mandela's riveting memoirs, A LONG WALK TO FREEDOM , were first published in 1994 to universal acclaim. This exciting illustrated edition now portrays his life in words and pictures. Vivid descriptions of his childhood environment, early Johannesburg, life in the townships, Robben Island and the events, protests, historic trials and acts of vengeance that forged his destiny are now accompanied by haunting and dramatic photographs that illuminate his story in an unforgettable way.
