Using a thousand images of past and present, The world that made Mandela moves from rural villages to the hectic metropolis, from District Six to Robben Island. Tracing his footsteps through sites of public struggle and private development, it illuminates many hidden spaces in our history, while casting new light on the familiar. South Africans will find this book a rich reflection of their cultural and political heritage, and visitors to the country will discover in it the faces of our past and our people. The book breaks new ground in South African biography by identifying both the people and the places that shaped the life of a great man.
