Overview

Join TIME to explore the full story of Nelson Mandela, the remarkable man whose incandescent smile, forgiving spirit and work for reconciliation made him one of the most significant leaders of the 20th century and one of the most admired people in the world. TIME Nelson Mandela traces the twin journeys of Mandela and his nation away from the hateful system of racist apartheid to the creation of a modern South Africa where all people are free.

Here is Mandela’s journey in full detail: his birth in a grass hut as a prince of the Thembu tribe … his work as an inspiring young lawyer fighting for civil rights for blacks … his years as an underground freedom fighter … and the 27 years he spent in jail as a political prisoner. And here is his incredible return to freedom, when he moved the world by vowing to forgive his captors and to reconcile all the people of his land, steering his nation away from a racial war.

TIME Nelson Mandela features a personal and insightful introduction by TIME managing editor Richard Stengel, the co-writer of Mandela’s autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom. Here is history as only TIME can tell it: rich, clear, incisive and filled with the details that bring the story of one of our great modern heroes to fresh, inspiring life.

    Hero's Journey ~ 2

    When I awoke, I was acutely aware of the throbbing temperment in the back of my head. I brushed through my dusty brunette hair to gingerly rub the raised bump, wincing.
    <p>
    I stood unsteadily, surprised to find every bone sound and in place. Glancing up, I vaguely made out the hole from which I had fallen.
    <p>
    "Great. . ." I muttered to myself, brushing my raggdd clothes off.
    <p>
    "On the contrary," a voice mumbled from the darkness, "I would say you are in quite the predicament."
    <p>
    I jumped, whirling around; my skin prickled as if live spiders were crawling just below it.
    <p>
    "Who's there?" I called hoarsely.
    <p>
    The voice chuckled, the booming sound echoing fainty around the soft corners of the shadows, "Just me."
    <p>
    "Who's 'me?'" I questioned, the darkness and voices making my heart flutter like a jar of trapped butterflies.
    <p>
    "You may call me Karon, but it would be best for me to keep my face hidden."
    <p>
    I gulped. "Okay," I said, "why are you here?"
    <p>
    The voice dropped to a more serious tone, "You are dead."
    <p>
    My heart faltered. "No. . . I can't be. No."
    <p>
    I could feel the--thing's--eyes on me, boring into my skin, seeing through me and viewing my soul.
    <p>
    "Oh, but you are." I felt an ice-cold finger press against my temple; I let out a gasp of pain and saw a feathery white shape drift from me. I felt hollow inside; my heart struggled to keep beating.
    <p>
    "What-what have you done?"
    <p>
    "I have taken your soul." The voice answered simply, "you have twenty-four hours to regain it. I suggest you start. Now."
    <p>
    A blinding flash consumed my vision and my stomach crawled into my throat.
