    Description

    The book is the autobiography of the former president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela.

    Summary Of The Book

    Born in a country torn by racial discrimination, Nelson Mandela dedicated his entire life fighting against apartheid and trying to achieve racial equality for his people. In Long Walk To Freedom, he tells the story of his life and struggles, a long and difficult journey to achieve liberation.

    In the first section, he recounts his childhood days of growing up in a small village called Mvezo in the Eastern Cape Province. His family belonged to the royal Thembu dynasty; his great-grandfather was the king of the Thembu people. He reflects upon his early education, his days at the university, and his involvement with student politics.

    In the next section of the book, he elaborates upon the early anti-apartheid movement with his induction into the African National Congress in 1950. He goes on to narrate the incidents that led up to his imprisonment for twenty-seven years and how he kept the fight going strong even from his prison cell.

    Released in 1995, the book follows Mandela's journey till after his release from prison and his eventual election as the first black president of the South Africa. It received the Alan Paton Award in its year of release.

    About Nelson Mandela

    Nelson Mandela is an internationally recognized political activist and former President of South Africa. He fought his entire life against apartheid and racial discrimination in his country.

    He has written a number of books about his life and struggles, most notably his autobiography Long Walk To Freedom. Other books by him include Hunger For Freedom, The Struggle Is My Life, and I Am Prepared To Die. Many compilations of his speeches, letters and other writings have also been released.

    Most of his books are autobiographical in nature. He wrote extensively about his political views and his contribution to the anti-apartheid movement. His memoirs serve not only as an insight into his personal struggles, they also retrace the socio-political history of South Africa.

    Mandela was born in a small village located in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. He studied law at the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. He became actively involved in politics through the African National Congress and was imprisoned for twenty-seven years under multiple charges. After his release in 1990, he facilitated the establishment of democracy in the country and became its first black president. He received numerous honours for his lifetime of struggle, including India’s highest civilian honour Bharat Ratna, the last Lenin Peace Prize from the Soviet Union, and the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Impeccable

    Astounding it may sound; but yes, sometimes truth is really stranger than fiction. I still can't imagine the pain he took for his people. In this world so selfish and cynic, the devotion he showed for the freedom of his people is truly remarkable.

    It is the story of a man who crossed the threshold of tolerance, courage and forgiveness. It changed a lot in me. A must read.
