About the Author:

Nelson Mandela is a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, former president of South Africa, former president of the African National Congress, and leader of the anti-apartheid movement.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* "A transforming leader . . . like Gandhi or King." "The single most admired, most respected international figure in the entire world." Beyond the images of saintly icon, this collection of Mandela's speeches shows why he remains a universal hero. In addition to the speeches, the volume includes sharp, insightful commentary by political leaders, South African and international, who discuss Mandela's amazing capacity for forgiveness; his commitment to reconciliation but also to justice; and his pride in his African identity. His stirring words also mark the landmarks in his country's history over 50 years, from his court address before being imprisoned for life, to his speech on his release 27 years later, his address on being elected prime minister, and his acceptance of the Nobel Peace Prize. Then there are his eloquent tributes to his fellow freedom fighters, such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and his memorials to those who died in the struggle, including Steve Biko, Ruth First, and many more, who were tortured and assassinated by the apartheid regime. Still an activist engaged with crucial issues, he calls on today's leaders to deal with poverty, education, AIDS, and other health issues ("kick polio out of Africa"). A much-needed companion to Mandela's autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom (1994), this volume will be in great demand for the personal drama, the history, and, yes, for the inspiring moral values.
