Nelson Mandela - From Freedom To History : [Filmography]

3 Disc Set. "Life & Times: Nelson Mandela chooses from the many truly extraordinary intimate epiphanies of his life: Whether its the silent walk with his mother to the Royal Kraal as a nine-year old...or the fiery end to his first marriage...the ice-cream counter decision to face the death penalty...the moment when he was told of his mother and son's death on Robben Island...the moment PW Botha served him tea...or how he reacted to the girl who broke down at a Toronto school named in his honour. This captivating biography is replete with the adventure, mishap, fortune and inexhaustible resolve of a truly historic life. Project Mandela: In the late 1980s, Nelson Mandela stood alone against the apartheid state.This film reveals for the first time the torturous journey that Mandela undertook on behalf of the vast majority of South Africans. From 1977 to 1990, the apartheid government agonized over the release of Nelson Mandela. In recounting that process, Project Mandela grips like a political thriller. While Prime Minister PW Botha prevaricates over meeting Mandela in person, Mandela patiently seeks a meeting with Botha. The slow-brewing Project Mandela comes to fruition on 11 February 1990 when Mandela walks through the gates of Pollsmoor to freedom and into history.

Special Features:

BONUS DISC: The Last Mile: Mandela, Africa and Democracy: Written and narrated by Tom Carver; produced and directed by Jennifer Pogrund; Dewald Aukema, camera; Henion Han, editor; William Kentridge, associate producer.

When Nelson Mandela was released after 27 years in prison on 11th February 1990, the entire world saw Winnie Mandela walking at his side.

Cast: Sophie Okonedo, David Harewood, David Morrissey

Manuel, markets and money : Essays in appraisal

From inside dust jacket:

"How well has Finance Minister Trevor Manuel played the hand which the South African economy has dealt him since 1996? Has there been any other way to play it? How does Manuel rank as a finance minister? What are South Africa's future economic prospects? These are some of the questions this volume seeks to answer.

A group of top economists, financial journalists and political analysts examine Manuel's successes and achievements as finance minister into an economic and political perspective. Manuel's term of office has coincided with major events and developments in the South African economy, which call for an authoritative but readable evaluation.

This study, which will be of absorbing interest to business people, students of the economy and general readers, has as both editor and contributor the well-known economist Professor Raymond Parsons, currently at the University of Pretoria. He is also the author of two previous books, The Mbeki Inheritance: South Africa's Economy 1990-2004 and Parsons' Perspective: Focus on the Economy."
