First United States edition. With a foreword by former U.S. President Bill Clinton and U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan. This text provides a selection of Mandela's speeches from 1953 to the late 1990s, with each section introduced by leading figures. Mandela's inspirational speeches reverberated around the globe as he communicated his hope for freedom, equality, and peace, within South Africa, and the wider world. 'Covering a range of topics of our times - struggle and reconciliation, freedom, religion and nation building, culture, education and health, children and development - the book also features Mandela's own tributes to South African heroes such as Steve Biko, Oliver Tambo, and Walter Sisulu' (The Hatchette Group).
