  • En 1994, Nelson Mandela est devenu le premier Président d'une Afrique du Sud démocratique. Dès le départ, il s'était engagé à n'accomplir qu'un seul mandat de cinq ans. Pendant sa présidence, avec son gouvernement, il a fait en sorte que tous les citoyens sud-africains soient désormais égaux devant la loi, et il a posé les fondations permettant de transformer un pays déchiré par des siècles de colonialisme et d'apartheid en une démocratie pleinement opérationnelle.
    Ce livre est le récit des années de présidence de Mandela, l'une des plus grandes figures du XXe siècle. Il raconte l'histoire extraordinaire d'un pays en transition et les défis que Nelson Mandela a dû affronter alors qu'il s'efforçait de faire de sa vision pour une Afrique du Sud libre une réalité.

  • 'I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.' Long Walk to FreedomIn 1994, Nelson Mandela became the first president of democratic South Africa. Five years later, he stood down. In that time, he and his government wrought the most extraordinary transformation, turning a nation riven by centuries of colonialism and apartheid into a fully functioning democracy in which all South Africa's citizens, black and white, were equal before the law. Dare Not Linger is the story of Mandela's presidential years, drawing heavily on the memoir he began to write as he prepared to finish his term of office, but was unable to finish. Now, the acclaimed South African writer, Mandla Langa, has completed the task using Mandela's unfinished draft, detailed notes that Mandela made as events were unfolding and a wealth of previously unseen archival material. With a prologue by Mandela's widow, Graça Machel, the result is a vivid and inspirational account of Mandela's presidency, a country in flux and the creation of a new democracy. It tells the extraordinary story of the transition from decades of apartheid rule and the challenges Mandela overcome to make a reality of his cherished vision for a liberated South Africa.
