»Ich bin einer von ungezählten Millionen, die durch Nelson Mandelas Leben inspiriert wurden.« Barack Obama Eine fast drei Jahrzehnte währende Gefängnishaft ließ Nelson Mandela zum Mythos der schwarzen Befreiungsbewegung werden. Kaum ein anderer Politiker unserer Zeit symbolisiert heute in solchem Maße die Friedenshoffnungen der Menschheit und den Gedanken der Aussöhnung aller Rassen wie der ehemalige südafrikanische Präsident und Friedensnobelpreisträger. Auch nach seinem Tod finden seine ungebrochene Charakterstärke und Menschenfreundlichkeit die Bewunderung aller friedenswilligen Menschen auf der Welt. Mandelas Lebensgeschichte ist über die politische Bedeutung hinaus ein spannend zu lesendes, kenntnis- und faktenreiches Dokument menschlicher Entwicklung unter Bedingungen und Fährnissen, vor denen die meisten Menschen innerlich wie äußerlich kapituliert haben dürften.

Als Nelson Mandela im Dezember 2013 starb, weinte nicht allein Südafrika. Die ganze Welt trauerte um den Mann, der seine ganze Kraft eingesetzt hatte, um eine stabile Demokratie aufzubauen. Über die Jahre bis zum Beginn seiner Präsidentschaft legte Mandela in seiner viel beachteten Autobiografie Zeugnis ab. Der Traum von einer neuen Gesellschaft war da noch lange nicht verwirklicht. Seinen Wunsch, auch über die entscheidenden Folgejahre zu schreiben, konnte Mandela sich jedoch nur teilweise erfüllen. Erst jetzt öffnet sich dank seiner Witwe und der Mandela Foundation der Zugang zu seinen außergewöhnlichen Präsidentschaftsjahren, ein unverstellter Einblick in Mandelas Wesen: seine bemerkenswerte Führungsstärke in der Wendezeit, seinen Pragmatismus, seine unverrückbaren Überzeugungen, sein unbeirrtes Streben nach dem Möglichen, seine persönlichen Kämpfe, seine Werte, Schwächen, Ängste und Triumphe, seine Enttäuschungen.
