From the Back Cover:

"James Mancham is the first President of Seychelles, one of several firsts achieved by this remarkable man. He is ambitious, politically shrewd, and a devoted Seychellois. He has the flamboyance of a Trudeau, the political determination of a Lee Kuan Yew, and the stamina for travel of a Kissinger."
--Alan Baily, The Times of London

"Mancham hailed, `International Ambassador for Peace and Goodwill'."
--Seychelles Nation

"I admire Sir James' tenacity and even more than that, his historical reflections as an objective view rather than the subjective. I have great admiration for his achievements; best of all, his devout interest in global peace."
--Reverend Delmer Tripp Robinson, ThD, PhD, EdDM, Archbishop (Emeritus), The Anglican Church USA

"Sir James is a unique Seychellois and global citizen. The traces left behind by his journey show he is a man of grandeur d'esprit, joix de vivre, compassion, insight, inborn charisma, and leadership. When a man of such caliber speaks, wise men listen."
-- J. C. Ahweng, PhD, University of Nagoya, Japan

"Sir James R. Mancham, the first President of the Republic of Seychelles, has become a visionary and passionate spokesman for the peoples of the small island states, a trail-blazer for peace across the oceans for he is truly a `Global Citizen' and a powerful advocate of our vision of `one human family under God'."
--Jose de Venecia, Five-time Speaker of the Philippine House of Representatives, Founding Chairman of the International Conference of Asian Political Parties (ICAPP), and Chairman-Emeritus of the Universal Peace Federation (UPF)

Book Description Paragon House Publishers, United States, 2009. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This title offers an insightful and informative look at the remarkable life and times of Sir James Mancham - founding President of the Republic of the Seychelles. James Mancham (b. 1939) is one of the most remarkable people to have appeared on the international political stage. In 1977, he became the Founding President of the Republic of the Seychelles as he led the country to independence from the Commonwealth. However, just one year later, he was ousted from this position and forced into exile after a coup d etat which ended with a socialist one-party state being declared.
