Synopsis

Tree Shaker: The Story of Nelson Mandela by Bill Keller

He was a child of royalty, born and raised to defend tradition. But his African name - Rolihlahla, meaning 'tree shaker' - hinted at a very different future. Nelson Mandela would spend most of his life shaking his country to its roots. This newly updated edition of New York Times veteran Bill Keller's moving biography looks back on Mandela's life, offering a clear-eyed view of his legacy and bringing his remarkable story to a new generation of readers.
