His own words do tell it best. This collection of Nelson Mandela's speeches, from his address to the annual conference of the African National Congress Youth League in 1951, numerous inspiring speeches during the four decades spent in prison, his famous speech on release from prison in 1990, addresses at the World Aids Conferences, and many others, provide the best possible portrait of a leader and his political career. But beyond a mere portrayal, this excellent biography provides another context as well. Organized thematically and chronologically with each section introduced by contributors who provide great insights, it explores what made Mandela a true fighter for freedom and one of the most compelling figures of his age, and looks at the impact his enormous persona has had on his compatriots, colleagues, and the masses throughout the world. With contributions by Bill Clinton and Kofi Annan, it is a true tribute to Mandela. (Kirkus UK)
IN HIS OWN WORDS is a selection of Nelson Mandela's speeches, providing a lively, memorable profile of his lifelong commitment to freedom and reconciliation, democracy, and the flourishing of all the people of South Africa, Africa and the world. Arranged thematically, each section of speeches is introduced by a leading figure, such as Kofi Annan and Desmond Tutu. In these introductory essays, the authors pay tribute to Nelson Mandela's achievements, animating their accounts with personal memories, stories and reflections. Covering a range of topics of our times - struggle and reconciliation, freedom, religion and nation building, culture, education and health, children and development - the book also features Mandela's own tributes to South African heroes such as Steve Biko, Oliver Tambo and Walter Sisulu.
