Nie-fiksie / Non-fiction - History & Politics South Africa / Politiek & Geskiedenis Suid Afrika
''There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we reach the mountain tops of our desires.'
This collection of Mandela's writings and speeches was first published in this format in 1965. Overnight, No Easy Walk to Freedom became an indispensible guide to the political thought of a man who was to become one of the twentieth century's greatest statesmen. Eighteen years into our democracy, Mandela's silence on the core issues that face South Africa in this historical moment is greatly felt. No Easy Walk to Freedom offers us the opportunity to re-engage with Mandela's thinking on nationalisation, land redistribution and the role of the strike in political discourse.
With a new introduction by William Gumede and original foreword by Oliver Tambo.'
