From his humble beginnings in rural South Africa to his tragic death at age 95 in 2013, Nelson Mandela's life is a tale of inspiration and courage. The most up-to-date biography of Nelson Mandela.

This powerful biography provides an in-depth look at Nelson Mandela who grew up in a rural village in South Africa under racist apartheid rule--a regime he ultimately helped overthrow.

Denenberg explores the history of South Africa and its often violent struggle for civil rights, while tracing  Mandela's role in that history. Lawyer, leader of the African National Congress, political prisoner who spent 26 years in jail, president--no one else has had such enormous influence on his fellow South Africans. Even beyond South Africa Nelson Mandela  influenced freedom fighters everywhere.

This latest biography traces Mandela's complete life story.

I finished this amazing book yesterday and think really highly of it. Though some parts were disturbing, the book had a great plot and a lot of action. I recommend this to anyone who is interested in Nelson Mandela or the struggle against aphartied

Even though i'm doing this book for a book challenge, I still really enjoyed it. You learn a lot, and I do not know that much about Africa, and this book taught me about it, in a fun way.
