Dare Not Linger
With a prologue by Mandela’s widow, Graça Machel, this hugely anticipated book tells the remarkable story of Nelson Mandela’s presidency from 1994-1999. It draws heavily on the sequel to Long Walk to Freedom, which he began writing in the last days of his presidency, 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. 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 story of the transition from decades of apartheid rule and the challenges Mandela overcome to make a reality of his cherished vision for a liberated South Africa.
