Nelson Mandela: Life in Photographs (10 Edition)by David Elliot Cohen
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
A celebration of freedom and the man who fought so valiantly for it: NELSON MANDELA
Almost 20 years ago, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela—brutally imprisoned in South Africa for his struggle against apartheid—was finally released. This beautiful illustrated volume commemorates that event and Mandelas inspiring life and work.
Created by renowned author David Elliot Cohen—who has worked with many of the top photojournalists who chronicled the apartheid battles”—Nelson Mandela contains many images that have rarely, if ever, been seen, as well as the more iconic photos that have lingered in peoples minds. Like Obama: The Historic Front Pages, this will be rich in illustrations and elegantly designed, and will contain brief essays and key Mandela speeches rather than a running text.
Book News Annotation:
This tribute to the South African leader traces the trajectory of his life fighting for the rights of blacks in South Africa, from his early years as a leading member of the ANC, the horror of the Sharpeville Massacre, the continuing struggle against apartheid, Mandela's release from prison after 27 years, and his subsequent years as a political leader. Published in an oversized format (9.5x11"), the full-page photos are accompanied by lengthy captions and interspersed with historical essays by Battersby, a celebrated South African journalist.
