The official picture-book edition of Nelson Mandela's internationally bestselling autobiography. Nelson Mandela is a true hero of our times, loved and admired across the globe for his dedication to the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, and for justice and peace throughout the world. This book tells the story of his life, from his carefree days as an ordinary village boy, to his unflinching leadership of the ANC, the long years in prison and his eventual freedom and extraordinary elevation to President of South Africa. Abridged by acclaimed author Chris van Wyk and beautifully illustrated by Paddy Bouma, this is an important book bringing an inspirational man to life for a younger generation.

Since his release from prison in 1990, Nelson Mandela has emerged as the world's most significant moral leader since Gandhi. As president of the African National Congress and spiritual figurehead of the anti-apartheid movement, he was instrumental in moving South Africa towards black-majority rule. He is revered throughout the world as a vital force for human rights and racial equality. Mandela's riveting memoirs, A LONG WALK TO FREEDOM , were first published in 1994 to universal acclaim. This exciting illustrated edition now portrays his life in words and pictures. Vivid descriptions of his childhood environment, early Johannesburg, life in the townships, Robben Island and the events, protests, historic trials and acts of vengeance that forged his destiny are now accompanied by haunting and dramatic photographs that illuminate his story in an unforgettable way.

These are memoirs of a great moral and political figure, an international hero whose lifelong dedication to the fight against racial oppression in South Africa won him the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize and the presidency of his country. 'Long Walk to Freedom' is his exhilarating story. Mandela recounts his youth, as the foster son of a Thembu chief, raised in the traditional tribal culture of his ancestors as he grew to learn the inescapable reality of apartheid oppression. He tells of his early years as an impoverished student and law clerk in Johannesburg and of his slow political awakening. He also describes his personal struggles at that time of having to reconcile his political activity with family, the anguished breakup of his first marriage, and the painful separation from his children. The escalating political warfare in the 1950s between the ANC and the government is vividly brought to life, culminating in Mandela's dramatic escapades as an underground leader and the notorious Rivonia Trial of 1964, at which he was sentenced to life imprisonment. He recounts the surprisingly eventful 27 years in prison and the complex negotiation which led to both his freedom and to the beginning of apartheid's end.

Presents an abridged version of the autobiography of the South African leader, in which he chronicles his life, including his tribal years, his time spent in prison, and his return to lead his people.

'More revealing of the man than his autobiography Long Walk to Freedom – and in many respects more moving as well' F.W. De Klerk 'A book that breaks the heart and then makes it sing' Andrew Rawnsley, Observer Books of the Year ‘Intensely moving, raw and unmediated, told in real time with all the changes in perspective that brings, over the years, mixing the prosaic with the momentous. Health concerns, dreams, political initiatives spill out together, to provide the fullest picture yet of Mandela.’ Peter Godwin, Observer
