Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Kramer presents an involved history of the life of Nelson Mandela for the "Twentieth-Century History Makers" series, complete with a detailed chronology of the political struggles of South Africa. Apartheid, racism, and European dominance paired with Mandela's non-violent opposition are themes that emerge from the struggles of the people of South Africa. Kramer deals at length with Mandela's interest in politics, the people whom he worked with, as well as the conditions and extent of his imprisonment. Kramer is frank and impartial in her assessment of Mandela's struggle for equality in South Africa and his attempt to govern the country in its post-apartheid state. The book is well written and packed full of complicated facts regarding various ethnic groups, political organizations, and movements within South Africa. Helpful maps and photographs are included throughout the book to familiarize the reader with Nelson Mandela and those people and places surrounding his journey. A glossary and timeline help the reader become familiar with difficult terms and to place events within a meaningful context. This would be a necessary addition to a middle school or high school library and a worthy resource for a middle school or high school unit on civil rights. 2003, Raintree Steck-Vaughn/Harcourt,
— Sarah Nelson
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-This biography introduces readers not only to Mandela, but also to the political turmoil that affected South Africa for over a century. It begins with his birth, and covers his school years, his political ventures, imprisonment, release, presidency, Nobel Peace Prize, and retirement. Full-color photographs appear throughout and a time line runs along the bottom of each spread. While there is good information here, it's unfortunate that some of it is placed in bubbles or in chopped segments. Despite the occasionally confusing layout, the book is well worth purchasing.-Amanda Conover Le, St. Johns County Public Library System, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
