Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Read by Danny Glover, with an introduction by Kofi Annan.


Nelson Mandela is one of the great moral and political leaders of our 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. Since his triumphant release in 1990 from more than a quarter-century of imprisonment, Mandela has been 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 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 tells the extraordinary story of his life--an epic of struggle, setback, renewed hope, and ultimate triumph.

Synopsis:

World-famous political leader Nelson Mendela tells his own story: the story of struggle and survival against one of the harshest systems of segregation ever devised -apartheid.

He tells of his pivotal role in the formation of the ANC Youth League, of the dramatic underground years which lead to his 1964 sentence to life imprisonment, and of the surprisingly eventful quarter-century that followed before his triumphant release in 1990.

Today Nelson Mandela is the President of South Africa and travels the world speaking out against racism and oppression. His efforts have been instrumental in the repeal of apartheid and won him The Nobel Peace Prize in 1993. Part philosopher, part statesman and part activist, he has emerged as a modern-day hero.

Synopsis:

For the first time on CD, Nelson Mandela tells the extraordinary story of his life--an epic of struggle, setback, renewed hope, and ultimate triumph. Abridged. 5 CDs.
