Produktbeschreibung
The autobiography of global human rights icon Nelson Mandela is "riveting...both a brilliant description of a diabolical system and a testament to the power of the spirit to transcend it" (Washington Post). 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.

Autorenporträt
Rolihlahla Nelson Mandela, geboren 1918 in Südafrika, ist weltbekannt für seinen Kampf gegen die Apartheid, für den er 27 Jahre im Gefängnis verbringen mußte. 1993 erhielt er den Friedensnobelpreis, ein Jahr später wurde er zum Präsidenten von Südafrika ernannt. Mandela wuchs in dem ländlichen Dorf Qunu auf, wo er schon früh durch die Erzählungen der Älteren mit der afrikanischen Geschichte und Folklore vertraut gemacht wurde. Er verstarb im Dezember 2013 im Alter von 95 Jahren.
