Long Walk to Freedom by Nelson Mandela (ebook)The quintessential political autobiography. Madiba takes us through his formative years, his three trials, his years of imprisonment, followed by his freedom and path to head of state in South Africa. Along the way we meet the architects of apartheid, who not only took segregation to ridiculous levels even as the States was desegregating, but also imposed a police state without any semblance of human rights even for the white minority, in particular the rights to habeas corpus and free speech. The book also serves as a stark reminder that under certain conditions, other countries could suffer the fate the author's country did. Equally a delight to read but sobering as well.
