Summary
"Arrested in 1962 as South Africa's apartheid regime intensified ... forty-four-year-old lawyer and African National Congress activist Nelson Mandela had no idea that he would spend the next twenty-seven years in jail. During his 10,052 days of incarceration, [he] ... wrote a multitude of letters to unyielding prison authorities, fellow activists, government officials, and ... his courageous wife Winnie and his five children. Now, 255 of these letters, many of which have never been published, provide ... insight into how Mandela maintained his inner spirits while living in almost complete isolation, and how he engaged with an outside world that became increasingly outraged by his plight"--
