Book Summary

Nelson Mandela is one of the world's most revered public figures, a man synonymous with the long, bitter struggle to rid South Africa of an apartheid regime and replace it with a multi-racial democracy. Today, he is seen as the face of world freedom, an ambassador for civil rights, a heroic liberator whose influence and image of moral integrity extend way beyond his homeland. Fully illustrated, this book chronicles the remarkable life of Nelson Mandela, from his days as a student activist and guerrilla leader to his position as an iconic statesman. After spending 27 years in prison, his eventual release and election as South Africa's first black president were landmark events in twentieth-century history.

Author Bio

Christina Scott was an award-winning journalist in radio, television, print and the Internet. She first went to South Africa, intending to stay for three months, at a time when it seemed that Nelson Mandela was never going to get out of jail. Just after she arrived, martial law was imposed. Whilst covering the mayhem in the townships, the police tried to kick the reporter out, calling her a security risk, but she stayed, enduring death threats, arrests and assaults. Scott covered the day that Mandela was released from jail and his first visit to some of the most war-torn parts of the country. She also produced Mandela's first ever radio talk show.
