A celebration of freedom and the man who fought so valiantly for it: NELSON MANDELA

Almost 20 years ago, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela?brutally imprisoned in South Africa for his struggle against apartheid?was finally released. This beautiful illustrated volume commemorates that event and Mandela's inspiring life and work.

Created by renowned author David Elliot Cohen?who has worked with many of the top photojournalists who chronicled the ?apartheid battles"?Nelson Mandela contains many images that have rarely, if ever, been seen, as well as the more iconic photos that have lingered in people's minds. Like Obama: The Historic Front Pages, this will be rich in illustrations and elegantly designed, and will contain brief essays and key Mandela speeches rather than a running text.
