Read an Excerpt

‘I have fought against white domination, and have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.’ Nelson Mandela, delivered from the dock, Rivonia Treason Trial, 20 April 1964

The book provides numerous quotes from Mandela, but they all seem excessively truncated. Consequently, the flow of Mandela's thoughts are greatly mangled. I also found any lead in or explanatory sentences, from the editor, to be generally abrupt. Lastly, the work is overly brief. There are quite a number of excellent speeches, letters and narratives that Mandela produced. The book could have provided complete texts or even substantial excerts from any number of the sources, but again and again it fails to allow Mandela's wonderful vision of the best we can be to be properly expressed. I was not at all happy with the editorial efforts reflected in this book. I would not recommend it.

My God continue to be with your loved ones. As you take your rest from the cares of this world. Gone but never forgotten. May you rest in peace.

This book does not fully incorporate all of Mandela's political relations nor does it fully illuminate his ties to Communist dictators.
