In the Words of Nelson Mandela
I have fought agaist white domination, and have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.' Delivered from the dock, Rivonia Treason Trial, 20 April 1964. Through his words and deeds Nelson Mandela has been embraced by the world as a symbol of courage, hope and reconciliation. Collected in In the Words of Nelson Mandela, his comments on subjects as diverse as Humanity, Racism, Friendship, Oppression and Freedom provide an insight into the man and all he stands for. By turns moving, generous, humorous and sad, this book eloquently conveys his warmth and dignity. It will be both an inspiration and a source of strength for all who read it.
