Nelson Mandela: The Man and the Movement
Nelson Mandela has become a legend in his own lifetime; the embodiment of the struggle for liberation in South Africa and the symbol of its triumph. In this biography, the author describes Mandela's life, work and ideas from his childhood in the royal family of the Thembu people to his membership of the African National Congress, including the many years in captivity on Robben Island and the birth of the hope that came with his release.
