Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-- In this perceptive biography of the South African civil rights leader, Hughes provides extensive background information on the man and the system of apartheid. The writing style is straightforward, and illustrations consist of several black-and-white photographs that nicely reinforce the text. The author is adept at presenting Mandela's strengths of character, while his weaknesses are minimized. What emerges is a man of infinite determination in his quest to assure equality for the majority of his countrymen. This book, more than the many others that have been published in the past year or so, enables readers to obtain a personal look, as well as a political one, at an important global figure. --Jeanette Lambert, Nashville Metropolitan Schools, TN
