Out of stock
"He was not called 'Nelson' until he was seven. . . . The name his parents gave him at birth, Rolihlahla, was the Xhosa word for 'treeshaker.' Later in life Mandela enjoyed pointing out that his people use the word to mean 'troublemaker.'" From humble beginnings, Mandela went on to become a revolutionary, the world's most famous prisoner, and the first black president of South Africa. Written by the former chief of the New York Times bureau in Johannesburg. Includes contemporary articles about the end of apartheid and an afterword.
