From the dustjacket:
- "Luli Callinicos, one of South Africa's most eminent historians, has created an extraordinary documentary of a book in which geography and history blend, and the collective life and image of a nation is focused through the life of one individual - Nelson Mandela."
- W M Sisulu: "Every South African should read this book." (From the Foreword)
- Nelson Mandela: "This fine book brings to life our living history. Here are the people and events of our past, commemorated in the places that map the pathway to our country's liberation."
- Nadine Gordimer: "Greatness is inborn. But it is what it makes of the time, place and circumstances with which and in which it develops that it is manifest. Luli Callinicos has done something prodigious. The world that made Mandela is a stunningly fascinating book, on a level high above hagiography, graphic - in both rare photographs and informative text - a fulfilling experience and of the exaltation and tragedy by which history, in the hands of greatness, moves on, and leaves its traces for us to visit in sites and landscapes."
The top and bottom edges of the dustjacket are lightly chipped, but the rest of the copy is complete, unmarked and as-new.
