    This is a good report on the fascinating story of the negotiations between the ANC, in particular Nelson Mandela, and the South African government in the years that preceded the end of apartheid Conversations between Mandela and government representatives actually began four years before his release That period allowed representatives of both sides to become well acquainted, and to build up the trust that carried them through the challenges of turning an idea into a reality The event awaited ...
