Nelson Mandela, who became South Africa's first post-Apartheid president and is widely credited with helping his country sidestep a possible civil war, led an eventful life. Born in 1918 in a small village, Mandela studied law and participated in revolutionary activities that led to his imprisonment on Robben Island for nearly two decades. Readers will find much to admire about this site, which features an excellent Timeline of Mandela's life, including images and quotes.
