    This brick of a biography provides a very comprehensive account of the political career of Nelson Mandela, his involvement in the ANC, and the anti apartheid movement Anthony Sampson is stronger cataloguing the earlier part of Mandela s career, when I believe he hadfirst hand knowledge of events I got the sense he was eliding quite a bit in his look at Mandela s political career and personal life after his release from prison Painful passages in Mandela s life are mentioned but not real This brick of a b...
