In Memoriam: Nelson Mandela (1918–2013)

Nelson Mandela

Nelson Mandela, one of the world's most revered statesman and South Africa's first black president, has died at the age of 95. In addition to his legacy as a political leader and anti-apartheid activist, Mandela was an orator, philanthropist, writer, and subject of many books, including Mandela's Way: Lessons on Life, Love, and Courage by Richard Stengel (Crown), for which Mandela wrote the preface; Mandela: The Authorized Biography by Anthony Sampson (Vintage); Madiba A to Z: The Many Faces of Nelson Mandela by Danny Schechter (Seven Stories Press), Nelson Mandela: The Unconquerable Soul by Lewis Helfand (Campfire); and Reflections on Nelson Mandela by Antoinette Haselhorst (Titan Books).

Stengel, who collaborated with Mandela on his bestselling autobiography and became a cherished friend, has written a remembrance, which can be read here. For his full New York Times obituary, click here.
