([Johannesburg]: South African Jewish Board of Deputies, 2011) 9780620506137. 4to; original grey cloth with black cloth back, lettered in silver gilt on spine and in black and blind on upper cover; pp. (ii) + vii + (i) + 259 + (iii), incl. index; profusely illustrated. Fine condition. The best photographic record we have yet seen of the life of Mandela, this book also provides a vivid reminder of how many members of South Africa's Jewish community played an important part in the anti-apartheid struggle. "Jewish Memories of Mandela offers a fresh perspective of the story of Nelson Mandela and the anti-apartheid struggle as seen through the lives and recollections of Jewish South Africans who were a part of it. It gives new insights into such well-known personalities as Helen Suzman, Ali Bacher, Joe Slovo, Sol Kerzner, Tony Leon and Arthur Chaskalson and their role in South Africa's democratic transformation." .

The two collaborators have succeeded in their attempt and in doing so have added further and invaluable details to our knowledge of these remarkable people." .

"The life of Nelson Mandela, from the personal and the global perspective, is one of the epic stories of the twentieth century. It is also one of the most inspiring. Twenty years ago, Mandela was an almost forgotten figure languishing in jail on Robben Island: today, as he leaves office as President of South Africa, he is one of the most widely admired leaders on earth. By giving Anthony Sampson unprecedented access to 27 years' worth of unpublished correspondence from prison, as well as to other unpublished writings including his original, suppressed, autobiography, Mandela has enabled to write the most comprehensive account of his life to date." .
