The world celebrated in 1990 when South African activist Nelson Mandela was released from prison, where he had lingered for almost a quarter century because of his relentless anti-apartheid stance. However, after such a long imprisonment, many of Mandela's own generation had forgotten his heroic struggle, while to the next generation, he was merely a symbol of the oppression of the past. In this exceptional autobiography, Mandela relives his story with the same resonance, resilience, and grace that have marked his lifelong crusade for human rights. Mandela was raised as the foster son of a tribal chief in the rural village of Transkei, but he was eventually educated in the modern ways of the world. He poetically depicts his political awakening as an impoverished student in Johannesburg, which led to his involvement with the African National Congress, a nearly dormant resistance group that he helped to revive into a powerful coalition for justice and equality. He dramatically documents his years as an underground fighter, his eventual capture and trial, and his prolonged years of imprisonment, where he continued to act as a prominent voice for the ANC and spent years delicately negotiating his own release. As Mandela will be remembered as one of the most significant figures of the 20th century, this seminal text is certain to remain one of the most important memoirs of our time.


New York Times Book Review
"Fortunately for readers, not to mention for South Africa, the Nelson Mandela who emerges from his memoir, 'Long Walk to Freedom' is considerably more human than the icon of legend." - Bill Keller 12/18/94
