Description

Long Walk To Freedom is an articulate, touching account of Mandela’s life progressing from his childhood in rural Transkei in 1918 to his inauguration in Johannesburg as the President of South Africa on May 10, 1994. Mandela unearths his accounts of the oppression of the blacks in South Africa and his stance on his concept of armed struggle. The book also showcases his beliefs that all people, white or black, have the right to freedom.

The first part of the book, talks about his education and upbringing, while the second part introduces social and political aspects of apartheid in South Africa. Mandela recollects his joining of the African National Congress in 1950. With their assistance he launched an armed struggle against the rigid apartheid government.

More than third of Mandela’s memoir talks about his 27 prison sentence – an account that stands solely as a prison narrative. One of the most powerful excerpts in the book include the Robben Island prison account- It was here where Mandela read books such as War And Peace, resisted feelings of resentment and found decency even in his callous prison residents. The most moving aspect of the book though, is the effect of his commitment towards his struggle for freedom and how his family, inevitably had to pay the terrible price.

  1. Sanju Audio creation (Verified Purchase)

    The writing is forceful, and beautiful and honest. I received inspiration, education and amazement from reading this book.

  2. Dimple Bodosa (Verified Purchase)

    It was a pleasure and honor to have read this book. “Long walk to freedom” chronicles the life of Nelson Mandela told in his words about the journey from a small village boy, to a freedom fighter, fighting for the equality and liberty of the oppressed South African majority under apartheid. From spending nearly 3 decades behind bars to the first Black South African president, Medela is the embodiment of strenght and resilience.

  3. ayush maheshwari (Verified Purchase)

    This book should be read slowly, over several months, in order to absorb a multitude of facts, and the growth of the man who wrote it. It’s laced with humor, love, judgment, and the inexorable evolution of Nelson Mandela’s soul.
