Madiba: The Reader's Digest Tribute to Nelson Mandela
In 2005, Reader's Digest spoke with Nelson Mandela and explored his hopes, concerns and faiths for the future of his beloved South Africa. In 1990 he walked out of prison, free after 27 years, to fulfil his destiny as leader of his country and one of the most inspiring statesman in history. 'I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.' Bound in one illustrated collection, we have two books, Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela, his fascinating biography covering his 1963 trial when he faced the death penalty for conspiracy and sabotage and his long imprisonment on Robben Island. The second book is Playing the Enemy by John Carlin. In 1994, Nelson Mandela became South Africa's first democratically elected President, but how was he to bring together the black majority with Afrikaaners who were determinedly arming themselves for civil war? An international bestseller made into the movie Invictus, this is the inspiring account of how Mandela, social revolutionary and consummate statesman, used the Rugby World Cup Final of 1995, hosted by South Africa, to win the hearts and minds of blacks and whites alike and effect a peaceful unification of his country.
