Краткое описание

Long Walk to Freedom: The Autobiography of Nelson Mandela.

In "one of the few political autobiographies that's also a page-turner" (LATBR), first published in 1995 during Nelson Mandela's presidency, the late Nobel Peace Prize winner charts his life and career from his birth in 1918 in Eastern Cape Province to his becoming the first elected black leader of South Africa in 1994. Mandela began his memoir in secret during his 27-year prison term for conspiracy to overthrow South Africa's apartheid government, and gives us an epic account of struggle, setback, renewed hope, and ultimate triumph. This edition includes a 2013 foreword by former president Bill Clinton."The Nelson Mandela who emerges from Long Walk to Freedom is considerably more human than the icon of legend.... The narrative is enlivened by intimate detail and introspection."—NYTBR"This is an articulate, moving account of Mandela's life from his 'country childhood' following his birth on July 18, 1918 to his inauguration as president of South Africa on May 10, 1994. Mandela traces the growth of his understanding of the oppression of the blacks of South Africa; his conviction that there was no alternative to armed struggle; his developing belief that all people, black and white, must be free for true freedom; and the effect that his commitment to overthrowing apartheid had on his family, who 'paid a terrible price.' Over a third of Mandela's memoir tells of his 27 years in prison, an account that could stand alone as a prison narrative. He ends his book with the conclusion that his 'long walk' for freedom has just begun: 'For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others'."—Library Journal
