Thabo Mbeki has devoted his life to the people of South Africa, first as a courageous fighter against apartheid and then as president of his beloved nation, helping to heal the wounds caused by decades of oppression. His success is even more astounding considering the seemingly insurmountable obstacles he encountered early in life: His activist father spent many years in prison because of his political beliefs. Close relatives disappeared, never to be seen or heard from again. And Mbeki himself was forced to live in exile for nearly 30 years. What gave him the strength and determination to continue his struggle? How did the little boy from a small village go on to become South Africa's president? This revealing biography answers these questions and more, exploring the life and accomplishments of this remarkable world leader.
