INDEX

 

International Acclaim for

LONG WALK TO FREEDOM

 

“A compelling book . . . both a brilliant description of a diabolical system and a testament to the power of the spirit to transcend it. . . . One of the most remarkable lives of the twentieth century.”


Washington Post Book World

 

 

“ ‘Irresistible’ describes
Long Walk to Freedom,
which must be one of the few political autobiographies that’s also a page-turner.”


Los Angeles Times Book Review

 

 

“A truly wonderful autobiography, sharp, literate, unpretentious, and . . . as emotionally involving as it is informative.”


Chicago Tribune

 

 

“The Nelson Mandela who emerges from
Long Walk to Freedom
. . . is considerably more human than the icon of legend.”


New York Times Book Review

 

“Words like ‘generosity,’ ‘fortitude,’ and ‘patience’ ring through this moving account of Mandela’s life and struggle. . . . All hail to the man who could wait so long, and who knew what would be worth waiting for. Viva, Mandela, Viva!”


Globe and Mail

 

 

“An engrossing tapestry of recent South African history that grips the reader from the first pages. . . . Riveting and sometimes painfully honest.”


San Francisco Chronicle

 

 

“One of the most extraordinary political tales of the 20th century, and well worth the investment for anyone truly interested in the genesis of greatness.”


Financial Times
(London)

 

 

“A deeply touching chronicle of one of the remarkable lives of the twentieth century.”


Christian Science Monitor

 

 

“The work of a man who has led by action and example — a man who is one of the few genuine heroes we have.”


Kirkus
