The End of Apartheid: Diary of a Revolution
By Robin Renwick
On the 11th February 1990 anti-apartheid campaigner Nelson Mandela was finally freed from prison. Close friend and former ambassador to South Africa, Robin Renwick recalls the extraordinary events surrounding Mandela's release in this vivid, affectionate and carefully observed portrait. Drawing on previously unpublished material from Downing Street and the Foreign Office, as well as Renwick's own diaries, the resulting account is moving, informative and a must-read.
