A free collection of articles published during 2011 in the online biographical magazine, Egopendium. Twenty men of today assessed, not always sympathetically, by great figures from the past who had similar talents or achievements.
This short, simple guide tells you all about Nelson Mandela, from his early years with the ANC, through the turbulent times and tough decisions on the use of violence for the cause, to his working with the South African government to end apartheid. On becoming president and transforming the great nation of South Africa. History in the making
Many have written about Nelson Mandela, but I wanted to write about his dream; a dream which sustained him through three decades of imprisonment; a dream held by other tribal chiefs in the Africa of old and passed on to the next generation, like a baton until it eventually ended up in the hands of Nelson Mandela, who then gave it to the world. Nelson Mandela described this story as ‘Wonderful’.
This book is a compilation of the 3 stories that Nelson Mandela phoned me personally to say were ‘Wonderful’ at their publication in the year 2000. They tell the story of an African, Indian and Jamacian from the individual perspective of three children; one from South Africa, one from the Punjab in India and one from Falmouth in Jamaica, and provide an accurate historical background setting.
The first book in the Mean Streets Series, it is a brutally honest and unconventional account of life in the South African Police Force (1985-1991) in the years before Mr Nelson Mandela was released from jail. This one recalls the Author's basic training and other events at the South African Police College in Pretoria.
It is becoming irrefutable that as a race, we'll either take ourselves out through complacency, indifference, ignorance, and educational suicide or be taken out through violence, guns, incarceration, and preventable diseases.

A conventional English girl arrived in South Africa, to help a friend run horseback safaris on a game reserve in the Northern Transvaal. It was 1992. There were yellow road signs declaring "Dit is die Volkstaat". Sophie had heard of "biltong" but knew nothing of Afrikaans culture.
