$2,000.00

Nelson Mandela was one of the most important politicians and activists in the twentieth century. As the first President of South Africa after the end of minority rule, Mandela made great strides in dismantling apartheid and reconciling the colonial history of South Africa. What made his legacy all the more impressive, though, was that he endured nearly thirty years of imprisonment for his activism against apartheid before becoming duly elected. For his life’s work, he has won numerous humanitarian awards, including the Nobel Peace Prize. In Long Walk to Freedom, readers will find a detailed account of Mandela’s life from childhood to his release from prison. The text also contains important insights into his political philosophies. Published the same year he was elected, it stands out as an important text in South African history. It is also widely considered one of the best political memoirs of the century.

This first American trade edition is signed by Mandela on the title page. It is in about-fine condition. In the original quarter cloth with green boards, about-fine with only bump to back board. Text block about-fine, only slightly shaken. In the original dust jacket, fine.
