Publisher Description

"Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand history – and then go out and change it." –President Barack Obama  
Nelson Mandela was one of the great moral and political leaders of his time: an international hero whose lifelong dedication to the fight against racial oppression in South Africa won him the Nobel Peace Prize and the presidency of his country. After his triumphant release in 1990 from more than a quarter-century of imprisonment, Mandela was at the center of the most compelling and inspiring political drama in the world. As president of the African National Congress and head of South Africa's antiapartheid movement, he was instrumental in moving the nation toward multiracial government and majority rule. He is still revered everywhere as a vital force in the fight for human rights and racial equality.

Long Walk to Freedom is his moving and exhilarating autobiography, destined to take its place among the finest memoirs of history's greatest figures. Here for the first time, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela told the extraordinary story of his life -- an epic of struggle, setback, renewed hope, and ultimate triumph. 
The book that inspired the major motion picture Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

So engrossing I didn't want him to leave prison!

Mandela's a leader in discipline, will and the integrity bound with the courage against seemingly intractable racism. An engaging writer, he tells His story with both detail and passion. Couldn't put it down!

Long Walk to Freedom

Mr. Mandela provides the reader with an in-depth, accurate and compelling history of the rise to power of the ANC in this rather long book. He certainly leaves no stone unturned, or small fact overlooked as he takes us through his 80 or so years of his tumultuous life in South Africa. A historical must read.
