Summary
"On February 11, 1990 Nelson Mandela was released from Robben Island after 27 long, hard years of imprisonment. Four years later he became president following the first fully representational democratic election in South Africa. He is a universally revered bastion of freedom, unity and sacrifice, whose life story and reputation often obscure the man behind the icon. This book reveals the nature of that man through his own words." "Mandela's oratorical prowess and irrepressible conviction have been his most potent tools in the struggle against apartheid and the forging of a new, inclusive South African national identity. His is not the rhetoric of a demagogue but that of an educated man engaging in a logical and reasoned argument against an illogical, oppressive system and its values. His unashamed honesty and the accessibility of his language have earned him the love and respect of rich and poor, white and black, politician and layman." "Let Freedom Reign is a collection of Mandela's greatest speeches, showing that he stood, and still stands, for the principles of equality and democracy as a man, and transparency and accountability as a politician. This is the essence of his universal, enduring popularity."--Jacket
