Mandela and America
Mandela and America is about the long and complex relationship between Nelson Mandela and the United States.
On one level, it is about Mandela's visits to the United States and his relationships with Americans from many different walks of life. On another level, the book traces the common understanding of freedom exemplified by the United States and South Africa during the Mandela years. The relationship has not always been a smooth one, but it has deepened over the years, yielding productive results in many fields.Mandela and America celebrates this special relationship. Written by the well-known writer-journalist Charlene Smith, and produced with the co-operation of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the book features over 100 photos, many never before published.
