Nelson Mandela is one of the great moral and political leaders of our time: an international hero whose lifelong dedication to the fight against racial oppression in South Africa won him the Nobel Peace Prize and the presidency of his country. Since his triumphant release in 1990 from more than a quarter-century of imprisonment, Mandela has been at the center of the most compelling and inspiring political drama in the world. As president of the African National Congress and head of South Africa’s anti-apartheid movement, he was instrumental in moving the nation toward multiracial government and majority rule. He is revered everywhere as a vital force in the fight for human rights and racial equality.

Long Walk to Freedom is his moving and exhilarating autobiography, destined to take its place among the finest memoirs of history’s greatest figures. Here for the first time, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela tells the extraordinary story of his life—an epic of struggle, setback, renewed hope, and ultimate triumph.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The famously taciturn South African president reveals much of himself in Long Walk to Freedom. A good deal of this autobiography was written secretly while Mandela was imprisoned for twenty-seven years.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “One of the most extraordinary political tales of the twentieth century, and well worth the investment for anyone truly interested in the genesis of greatness.”

    Financial Times (London)

  • “An engrossing tapestry of recent South African history that grips the reader from the first pages…Riveting and sometimes painfully honest.”

    San Francisco Chronicle

  • “Should be read by every person alive.”

    Boston Globe

  • “To read of Nelson Mandela’s fascinating journey…is to be reminded of the indomitable human spirit. Yet the reminder is delivered with such grace and subtlety that it intensifies its meaning.”

    San Diego Union-Tribune

  • “This memoir is remarkably free of polemics, self-pity, and self-aggrandizement. It is the work of a man who has led by action and example—a man who is one of the few genuine heroes we have.”
