    Hardcover Description:

    "I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die." Nelson Mandela spoke these words from the dock at the Rivonia Treason Trial on April 20, 1964. Through his words and actions ever since, Mandela has been embraced worldwide as a symbol of courage, hope, and reconciliation.South African journalist Jennifer Crwys-Williams has compiled a collection of Mandela’s observations, culled from a variety of sources. In the Words of Nelson Mandela presents his thoughts on subjects as diverse as humanity, friendship, oppression, and freedom. These quotations provide valuable insight into the man and all he stands for. By turns moving, revealing, humorous, and wise, Mandela’s words eloquently convey his warmth and dignity; his thoughts, though brief, contain enormous depth-"One minute can change the world," for example-and are certain to inspire and give strength to all who read them.
