Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This important, topical book is about Winnie and Nelson Mandela, leaders in the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa. Both have been in and out of prison, and since 1964, Nelson Mandela, head of the banned African National Congress and the man who, many agree, would be Prime Minister were free elections held, has been serving a life sentence. In a series of interviews, interspersed with Mandela's censored letters, his wifebanished in the late '70s to a remote town in the Orange Free Statetells their story. Here are their marriage and early years together, their political work and her life since his final arrest and triala time of harassment, marked by banishment and most recently the destruction by arson of the family's home and the kidnapping of a grandchild. The woman who emerges in this lyrical, poignant, tragic commentary is proud and humorous, whose majestic sense of self enables her to walk into white-only stores, demandingand receivingservice. Perhaps most significant, Winnie Mandela illustrates on a personal level the hideousness of apartheid and shares her dream of a South Africa freed of racial enslavement. First serial to Ms. and Mother Jones. Foreign rights: Sanford Greenburger Assoc. November

From Library Journal

This collection of interviews with Man dela and of excerpts from letters writ ten by her husband, Nelson, traces the life of a leader of the South African peo ple who has often been thought of only in relation to her husband. The inter views deal with much more than the current situation and create a brief autobiography of a remarkable woman. All periods, from childhood in Pondo land to her present life in Brandfort (her ``Little Siberia''), are discussed. For those who already know a great deal about the South African situation this book will illuminate the life of one ex traordinary leader, her determination and her hope in spite of imprisonment and banishment. For others the histori cal sections written by Benson will help to put the personal sections in context, and the book will be a good introduc tion to the nature of apartheid society. Recommended for public and college li braries. Maidel Cason, Northwestern Univ. Lib., Evanston, Ill.

Format: Paperback
What most people forget - South African as well as most foreigners (where the ongoing story about Nelson Mandela often graced the media) - we back home lived in a "White-Out" world of severe censorship. However - it has always been the women - mothers, wivers, daughters ... family members who were often denied any news about their activist menfolk. Not only this - but many of our women "the silent" numbers of the liberation struggle - who were overlooked for playing their role as steadfast revolutionaries.

The Woman's March in 1956 should have lain bare the undying commitment of the role of our women in The Struggle. Without their undying support - many of the detained, imprisoned menfolk would hardly have survived. And yet - these self-same women were made to bear the brunt of suppression by the fascist Neo-Nazi type oppressors. This is where our Nomzamo 'Winnie' Madikizela Mandela was most visible - for enduring constant arrests, interrogations, bannings and being forcibly removed from her small children. The experienced extreme hardship in the battle of keeping their families intact.

I learned more about Africa and the struggle of blacks revolting for freedom as the white African people celebrated. I didn't realize civil rights was won over in the 60's in the USA but it was years later for African nations. When I hear or observe black Americans complain not being treated right, I feel everyone needs to stand back, read how suppressed other people are in other countries, and thank God how all of us are in the USA!
