Nelson Mandela's biography

Title:
NELSON MANDELA: A Force for Freedom
Rating:
Not rated

Nelson Mandela is one of the world's most revered and popular figures, a man synonymous with the long, bitter struggle to rid South Africa of a racist regime and replace it with a multi-racial democracy. Today, he is seen as a symbol of world freedom, an ambassador for civil rights, a heroic liberator whose influence and image of moral integrity extend way beyond his homeland. Blessed with effortless charm, he leaves a lasting impression on anyone he meets. But the ready smile with which he greets children and adults alike masks a steely determination forged by decades of oppression.

This book chronicles the remarkable like of Nelson Mandela, from his childhood in rural Transkei to iconic statesman. Christina Scott brings a fresh and first-hand perspective to these landmark events and vividly conveys both the pain and the inspiration that have characterised the life of this remarkable man.
