About this title

Synopsis:

The Rough Guide to Nelson Mandela is a fresh, honest overview of the life story and impact of one of the world's greatest modern icons. It assesses the influence of his rural, traditional childhood on his personality, and his early years as a revolutionary leader and master strategist, as well as his private life and marriages. It explores his 27 years in an apartheid jail and reveals the inside stories of the white government's first secretive contacts with him and how he encouraged the intelligence chiefs to advise their political masters to abandon apartheid and negotiate a political settlement. The Rough Guide to Nelson Mandela explains Mandela's remarkable lack of bitterness and commitment to reconciliation with the white minority after his release.

Readers get a rare insight into Mandela's role in the crucial negotiations period and his term as South Africa's first black president. It critically examines his iconic status and his impact on the world stage. The Rough Guide to Nelson Mandela liberates Nelson Mandela from cloying myths and partisan portraits, pinpointing the true impact and legacy of one of the world's most recognizable figures.
