Mandela - Anthony Sampson. The Authorised Biography. Now with updated material by John Battersby.

Mandela - Anthony Sampson. I am conscious of both the unusual opportunity and the responsibility in undertaking this book.

Only 10 left in stock (more on the way). Now Anthony Sampson, who has known Mandela since 1951 and has been a close observer of South Africa's political life for the last fifty years, has produced the first authorized biography, the most informed and comprehensive portrait to date of a man whose dazzling image has been difficult to penetrate.

Mandela: The Authorised Biography is a study of Nelson Mandela, the former President of South Africa, by the late journalist Anthony Sampson. Sampson's book was published in 1999, five years after Mandela's autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom. The book was one of the first to examine such issues as Winnie Mandela's crimes, and State President Frederik Willem de Klerk's suspected attempts to use the security forces to derail peace talks.

Nelson Mandela, who emerged from twenty-six years of political imprisonment to lead South Africa out of apartheid and into democracy, is perhaps the world's most admired leader, a man whose life has been led with exemplary courage and inspired conviction.

Mandela: The Authorised Biography. A very detailed biography by a British journalist who knew Mandela from 1951 until the book was published in 1999. It uncovered for me some of the confusing conflicts in South Africa and explained the private problems which went on behind the engaging politician's life. Mandela emerged from jail to face up to his overwhelming global icon; and he did so by presenting himself as a fallible human being.

Mandela: the authorized biography. Sampson, a prolific British journalist, has written a richly detailed hymn of praise to the famed South African freedom fighter. While asserting that Mandela is hardly perfect, as his official.

Yet he famously retained his humanity, and while Sampson does not conceal Mandela's failings - his stubbornness, his fixed loyalties, his princely manners and detachment - the man who emerges is authentically heroic.

What a life! I was changed by this book. I grew up in a tradition which saw Mandela as a dangerous communist. Based on the assumptions I was taught in my sub-culture, I would have expected Mandela to follow the course of change which took place with majority rule in Zimbabwe. Instead I saw a leader who was gracious and interested in reconciliation. This book gave me additional insight to begin to understand why. Mandela should be remembered as this book presents him, a giant of our times. Read this book, especially if you tend to alt-right. It just may show you the danger of this trend and lead you to more tolerance and hopefulness.

Have you ever felt frustrated as a tourist that you had trouble seeing beneath the surface of the sights around you? When visiting South Africa in 2011 for the first time, I ran into this problem. I had read a fair number of South African books before the trip, but the sights around me when I got there raised more and more questions. When I found Anthony Sampson's biography of Mandela, it was like water for intense thirst. Six hundred pages later, I wanted only more. Sampson's work brings together psychology, history, and politics in a rich and authoritative web. He offers understanding that doesn't pretend to be complete, insight without presumption, complexity without detachment.

Still reading, but good going so far. Seems a comprehensive enough recapitulation of a great life and leader. The book is well written.
