»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

***EINE DER GROSSEN AUTOBIOGRAPHIEN DES JAHRHUNDERTS*** "Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.“ Barack Obama Kaum ein anderer Politiker dieses Jahrhunderts symbolisierte in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Völker auf Erden wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger Nelson Mandela, dessen Rolle für seinen Kontinent mit der Gandhis für Indien verglichen wurde. Seine trotz langer Haft ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit haben nicht nur die Bewunderung seiner Landsleute, sondern aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt gefunden. Obwohl als Häuptlingssohn, hochgebildeter und sprachenkundiger Rechtsanwalt gegenüber der schwarzen Bevölkerung privilegiert, war er doch nicht von vornherein zum Freiheitskämpfer und international geachteten Politiker prädestiniert. Erst die fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft hat ihn zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden lassen. Nelson Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

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.

Als Nelson Mandela im Dezember 2013 starb, weinte nicht allein Südafrika. Die ganze Welt trauerte um den Mann, der seine ganze Kraft eingesetzt hatte, um eine stabile Demokratie aufzubauen. Über die Jahre bis zum Beginn seiner Präsidentschaft legte Mandela in seiner viel beachteten Autobiografie Zeugnis ab. Der Traum von einer neuen Gesellschaft war da noch lange nicht verwirklicht. Seinen Wunsch, auch über die entscheidenden Folgejahre zu schreiben, konnte Mandela sich jedoch nur teilweise erfüllen. Erst jetzt öffnet sich dank seiner Witwe und der Mandela Foundation der Zugang zu seinen außergewöhnlichen Präsidentschaftsjahren, ein unverstellter Einblick in Mandelas Wesen: seine bemerkenswerte Führungsstärke in der Wendezeit, seinen Pragmatismus, seine unverrückbaren Überzeugungen, sein unbeirrtes Streben nach dem Möglichen, seine persönlichen Kämpfe, seine Werte, Schwächen, Ängste und Triumphe, seine Enttäuschungen.
