Nelson Mandela is widely considered to be one
of the most inspiring and iconic figures of our age. Now,
after a lifetime of taking pen to paper to record thoughts
and events, hardships and victories, he has bestowed his
entire extant personal papers, which offer an unprecedented
insight into his remarkable life.

materials to offer unique access to the private world
of an incomparable world leader. Journals kept on the run
during the anti-apartheid struggle of the early
1960s; diaries and draft letters written in Robben Island
and other South African prisons during his
twenty-seven years of incarceration; notebooks from the
postapartheid transition; private recorded conversations;
speeches and correspondence written during his
presidency—a historic collection of documents
archived at the Nelson Mandela Foundation is brought
together into a sweeping narrative of great immediacy and
stunning power. An intimate journey from Mandela’s first
stirrings of political consciousness to his
galvanizing role on the world stage, Conversations
with Myself illuminates a heroic life forged on the
front lines of the struggle for freedom and justice.
