Riassunto:

Nelson Mandela as he has never been seen before. His life?s sacrifices recounted in vivid detail by the prison guard with whom he became lifelong friends.

Raised in a multi-ethnic farming community, Afrikaner Christo Brand was confused and saddened when he first confronted the realities of South African apartheid. Conscripted into the military at 18, Brand chose to serve as a prison guard rather than embrace the brutality and danger inherent in the work of soldiers and policemen. Assigned to the maximum security facility on remote Robben Island, Brand was given charge of the country''s most infamous inmate: Nelson Mandela.

For 12 years Brand watched Mandela scrub floors, empty his toilet bucket, grieve over the deaths of family and friends yet remain as strong as any freedom fighter in history. Won over by Madiba''s charm and authentic concern for the well-being of others, Brand became Mandela''s confidante and at times accomplice. Celebrating triumphs and suffering through many setbacks, the two men formed an unlikely bond, one that would endure until Mandela''s death.

Told with candor and reverence, Mandela: My Prisoner, My Friend is both a meditation on friendship and a moving testament to the dedication, determination and?most of all?humanity exuded by one of the world''s great leaders.

Sinossi:

With Nelson Mandela?s recent passing, Mandela offers an exclusive look at the great icon?s younger life.

In this book Christo tells, for the first time, the incredible and moving story of their unlikely friendship.

Christo Brand was an 18-year-old recruit to the South African prison service when he was sent to work on the Robben Island prison, and was assigned to guard Nelson Mandela, who he was told was a dangerous terrorist. Over time, he became friendly with Mandela, even helping his wife Winnie bring in their grandchild for Mandela to hold for the first time.

Following Mandela?s release and election success, Brand was given a job in the archives department of the South African parliament. He is now a tour guide at Robben Island, and has remained close friends with Mandela?s family.
