Winnie Mandela: A Life by Anne Marie du Preez Bezdrob
Book DescriptionThis biography provides an inside perspective on, and understanding of, the life of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, who has been adored, feared and hated more than any other woman in South African history. The book explores the different aspects of her life: a talented, privileged child; caring wife and mother; and dedicated social worker and selfless political activist. Propelled as a result of circumstances into constant danger, ear-marked for destruction by the ruthless South African security police, imprisoned, tortured, exiled and isolated from human contact and interaction and finally discarded by the very people for whom she had sacrificed a promising career and a normal life.
