About this book
"A Long Walk to Freedom" is the memoir of Nelson Mandela, leader of the African National Congress and the first black president of South Africa. He tells of his childhood, growing up as the adoptive son of a Tembu chief, the two very different sides of South Africa, his years underground which led to his imprisonment in 1964 and his release in 1990. This is a revised and updated edition, covering his term of office, and is published to coincide with his retirement. The original edition was published in 1995.
*The autobiography of one of the greatest men of the twentieth century reissued to coincide with the publication of Anthony Holden's biography coming from HarperCollins
