Un long chemin vers la liberté by Nelson Mandela Summary

En 1974, alors qu'il est au pénitencier de Robben Island, Nelson Mandela rédige clandestinement des " souvenirs ". C'est ce texte, sorti en fraude, qu'il retrouvera lors de sa libération en 1990, après plus de vingt-sept ans de détention, et qu'il reprendra pour en faire Un long chemin vers la liberté. Nelson Mandela raconte comment le petit campagnard, né en 1918 au Transkei, dans la famille royale des Thembus, va ouvrir le premier cabinet d'avocats noirs d'Afrique du Sud et devenir un des principaux responsables de l'ANC. Ce récit mêle les souvenirs personnels, voire intimes, aux analyses de la situation en afrique du Sud et aux descriptions des luttes et des combats contre la domination blanche et l'apartheid. L'enfance et les rites d'initiation, la fuite à Johannesburg, le travail dans les mines et les études de droit, le premier mariage et le divorce, puis le second mariage avec Winnie, la découverte du nationalisme africain, les Campagnes de défi, la clandestinité, la lutte armée et la prison. Commencent alors les longues années de travail forcé - treize ans dans une carrière de chaux -, d'attente, mais aussi d'espoir et de luttes. Dans les années 80, le régime d'apartheid bousculé à l'intérieur par la résistance noire, étranglé par les sanctions économiques, n'aura d'autre issue que la négociation. Nelson Mandela, qui est devenu un mythe, sera l'homme clef pour sortir son pays de l'impasse où l'ont enfermé quarante années d'apartheid. Un long chemin vers la liberté est le récit d'une vie exemplaire entièrement consacrée à l'affirmation de la dignité de l'homme. C'est aussi un document exceptionnel sur un des bouleversements majeurs de cette fin de XXe siècle.

Long Walk to Freedom with Connections by Nelson Mandela Summary

These are memoirs of a great moral and political figure, an international hero whose lifelong dedication to the fight against racial oppression in South Africa won him the 1993 Nobel Peace Prize and the presidency of his country. 'Long Walk to Freedom' is his exhilarating story. Mandela recounts his youth, as the foster son of a Thembu chief, raised in the traditional tribal culture of his ancestors as he grew to learn the inescapable reality of apartheid oppression. He tells of his early years as an impoverished student and law clerk in Johannesburg and of his slow political awakening. He also describes his personal struggles at that time of having to reconcile his political activity with family, the anguished breakup of his first marriage, and the painful separation from his children. The escalating political warfare in the 1950s between the ANC and the government is vividly brought to life, culminating in Mandela's dramatic escapades as an underground leader and the notorious Rivonia Trial of 1964, at which he was sentenced to life imprisonment. He recounts the surprisingly eventful 27 years in prison and the complex negotiation which led to both his freedom and to the beginning of apartheid's end.

À marche forcée by Slawomir Rawicz Summary

Le livre La présente réédition (dans une traduction nouvelle) de ce classique absolu de l'aventure vécue est due à l'initiative de Nicolas Bouvier – qui n'aura pas eu le temps de l'accompagner jusqu'à son terme. « Ce n'est pas de la littérature, tenait-il à préciser, c'est peut-être mieux que ça... Certains livres sont assez forts pour se passer des secours du style. » Hiver 1941. Une petite troupe de bagnards s'évade d'un camp russe situé tout près du Cercle polaire. Ils ne connaissent pas grand-chose à la géographie. Ils songent « simplement » à gagner à pied l'Inde anglaise : le soleil, pensent-ils, leur indiquera au moins la direction du sud. Aucun d'eux n'est capable, sur les milliers de kilomètres qu'il leur faut parcourir – ils y mettront deux ans –, de situer le désert de Gobi... que plusieurs réussiront pourtant à franchir sans provision d'eau. L'innocence, parfois, est la meilleure alliée du courage... L'auteur Né à Pinsk en 1915 d’une mère russe et d’un père polonais propriétaire terrien, Slavomir Rawicz, officier de cavalerie en 1939, est fait prisonnier par les Soviétiques dès les premiers jours de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Un procès factice le condamne à vingt-cinq ans de travaux forcés dans l’un des goulags les plus durs de Sibérie. Une fois libre, il a voulu rendre compte de ce que fut cette réalité pour des milliers d’hommes, bagnards perdus au bout du monde. Publié en 1956 et rédigé avec l’aide d’un jeune journaliste, À marche forcée raconte l’incroyable épopée d’un groupe de prisonniers qui n’hésita pas à tenter l’impossible pour atteindre en des conditions extrêmes l’Himalaya et la muraille de Chine. Slavomir Rawicz, installé depuis 1947 à Nottingham en Grande-Bretagne, a toujours refusé de répondre à ceux qui mettaient en doute le fait qu’il ait lui-même vécu cette extraordinaire aventure. Il est décédé en 2004. Ce texte, considéré à ce jour comme l’une des références en matière de récits sur la captivité, l’esprit de survie et le besoin de liberté, a été adapté en 2010 par le réalisateur Peter Weir, sous le titre Les Chemins de la liberté.

Lettres de prison by Nelson MANDELA Summary

" Le nouveau monde ne sera pas construit par ceux qui restent à l'écart les bras croisés, mais par ceux qui sont dans l'arène, les vêtements réduits en haillons par la tempête et le corps mutilé par les événements. " Arrêté en 1962 par le gouvernement d'apartheid d'Afrique du Sud, Nelson Mandela a passé vingt-sept ans en prison – du 7 novembre 1962 au 11 février 1990. Au cours de ces 10 052 jours de détention, il fut un épistolier prolifique, écrivant des centaines de lettres aux autorités inflexibles, à ses compagnons de lutte, aux gouvernements officiels, mais aussi à sa femme Winnie, à ses cinq enfants et, plus tard, à ses petits-enfants. Les 255 lettres choisies dans ce livre, pour la plupart inédites, offrent le portrait le plus intime qu'on ait lu de Nelson Mandela et un aperçu exceptionnel sur la façon dont il a vécu cet isolement. Elles révèlent l'héroïsme d'un homme qui a refusé tout compromis sur ses valeurs, l'humanité de l'une des plus grandes figures du XXe siècle. " Les mots de Madiba sont une boussole dans une mer de changements, une terre ferme au milieu de courants agités. " Barack Obama

Dare Not Linger by Nelson Mandela,Mandla Langa Summary

‘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 Freedom In 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 overcame to make a reality of his cherished vision for a liberated South Africa.
