Robben Island – best known as the place where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for eighteen years – has been a place of harshness and brutality; its history steeped in the suffering of those banished there. Yet it has also become a universal symbol of hope, forgiveness, and triumph. With a storyteller’s sensibility, combined with rigorous research, Charlene Smith charts the evolution of the Island’s political and social history, from mail station, place of exile, and military defence post to maximum security prison and World Heritage Site. Fully revised, this new edition of Robben Island provides absorbing accounts of daring escapes, maritime disasters, lepers ostracized from mainland society, the fates of the great Xhosa chiefs of the nineteenth century, and the unique bonds of friendship and compassion forged among the political prisoners confined on the Island during the apartheid era. Today Robben Island is recognised for both its environmental riches and its cultural significance. More than just a geographical location or a tourist attraction, it is an enduring tribute to the resilience` of the human spirit. Sobering and uplifting, Robben Island is an essential read for anyone interested in South Africa’s turbulent journey to democracy and the people who made it possible.

These engaging and witty lectures bring together the ideas of three renowned scholars—Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Wole Soyinka, and Cornel West—as they reflect on Nelson Mandela's image in the public imagination and his role as a symbol of African pride. Gates, a powerful academic presence in the United States and chair of the department of African American studies at Harvard University, urges South Africans to think creatively about building their archives and suggests the work of W. E. B. Du Bois as well as his own Encyclopedia of African and African American Experience as models. West, a scholar at Princeton University and author of the influential book Race Matters, places Mandela as an exemplar in the great democratic tradition, while Africa's great man of letters Wole Soyinka, the first person of African descent to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, offers his remarks on global culture in "Views from a Palette of the Cultural Rainbow."

A wonderful, fully-illustrated celebration of the life of one of the most inspiring and respected leaders of our time. This book pays tribute to the life of Nelson Mandela with a unique collection of photographs from throughout his life. Mandela has become a household name, respected by everyone everywhere, from grandmothers to schoolchildren. Not so many people would recognize his other names, and he is a man who has been known by many names throughout his life. Nelson Rolihlahla Dalibhunga Mandela came from what most people would regard as a poor background, yet his family were aristocrats among the Xhosa people of the Transkei in South Africa. From the time he was a boy he was destined, as his father before him had been, to become an advisor at the court of the Xhosa king, but no one could have predicted that young Rolihlahla would one day become an outlaw known as "The Black Pimpernel" or a statesman of international standing—President Mandela.
