Summary
Nelson Mandela is known worldwide as a great moral and political leader, the first democratically elected South African president, the recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize, and a beacon of interracial goodwill. In Mandela, former foreign correspondent Bob Crew demystifies the icon and his legacy. After over a decade of travels in South Africa, Crew seeks truth in the unexpected details of the lives of Mandela and current South African president Jacob Zuma, comparing them to other world icons in order to bring a new understanding of their legacies to Western readers
