Book Description The Penguin Press, New York, 2008. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. First edition, first impression with full number line. Some very slight edge wear to top and bottom of jacket and spine, corners slightly bruised, not price clipped (($24.95), no inscriptions, internally clean tight and square, overall a vg++ copy. 274pp, illustrated. In June 1995, Nelson Mandela conquered the hearts of white South Africa and united his country, black and white, behind their rugby team. This book tells the extraordinary story of the journey to that moment. As the day of the final of the 1995 Rugby World Cup dawned, and the Springboks faced New Zealand's all conquering All Blacks, more was at stake than a sporting trophy. When Nelson Mandela appeared wearing a Springboks jersey and led the Afrikaner dominated team in singing South Africa's new national anthem, he conquered the hearts of white South Africa. 'Playing the Enemy' tells the extraordinary human story of how that moment became possible. It shows how a sport, once the preserve of South Africa's Afrikaans speaking minority, came to unify the new rainbow nation, and tells of how, just occasionally, something as simple as a game really can help people to rise above themselves and see beyond their differences. Now a film, Invictus, by Clint Eastwood, starring Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon. Bookseller Inventory # 004675
