9780393302905: Part of My Soul Went with Him

Winnie Mandela, one of South Africa's most visible and articulate apartheid foes, spent many years as a "banned" person in her own country. She lived under virtual house arrest and was forbidden to address public gatherings or meet with more than one person at a time. She endured a forced separation of 27 years from her husband, Nelson Mandela. Here, in interviews and letters, she tells the story of her life and political development.

From Publishers Weekly:

This important, topical book is about Winnie and Nelson Mandela, leaders in the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa. Both have been in and out of prison, and since 1964, Nelson Mandela, head of the banned African National Congress and the man who, many agree, would be Prime Minister were free elections held, has been serving a life sentence. In a series of interviews, interspersed with Mandela's censored letters, his wifebanished in the late '70s to a remote town in the Orange Free Statetells their story. Here are their marriage and early years together, their political work and her life since his final arrest and triala time of harassment, marked by banishment and most recently the destruction by arson of the family's home and the kidnapping of a grandchild. The woman who emerges in this lyrical, poignant, tragic commentary is proud and humorous, whose majestic sense of self enables her to walk into white-only stores, demandingand receivingservice. Perhaps most significant, Winnie Mandela illustrates on a personal level the hideousness of apartheid and shares her dream of a South Africa freed of racial enslavement. First serial to Ms. and Mother Jones. Foreign rights: Sanford Greenburger Assoc. November

From Library Journal:

This collection of interviews with Man dela and of excerpts from letters writ ten by her husband, Nelson, traces the life of a leader of the South African peo ple who has often been thought of only in relation to her husband. The inter views deal with much more than the current situation and create a brief autobiography of a remarkable woman. All periods, from childhood in Pondo land to her present life in Brandfort (her ``Little Siberia''), are discussed. For those who already know a great deal about the South African situation this book will illuminate the life of one ex traordinary leader, her determination and her hope in spite of imprisonment and banishment. For others the histori cal sections written by Benson will help to put the personal sections in context, and the book will be a good introduc tion to the nature of apartheid society. Recommended for public and college li braries. Maidel Cason, Northwestern Univ. Lib., Evanston, Ill.
