The impact of war on children : a review of progress since the 1996 United Nations report on the impact of armed conflict on children by Graça Machel( Book )

24 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The impact of armed conflict on children is devastating and total. War wounds children's bodies and destroys their spirit. Using examples from around the world, this book analyses the special vulnerabilities of children when families and communities are torn apart, schools are destroyed and stability shattered. Children are routinely forced into active combat, sexually exploited and abandoned to malnutrition, starvation and disease. This book demonstrates how war's legacy of horror continues to affect children long after hostilities cease, especially through landmines and unexploded ordnance, the proliferation of small arms, the instability of refugee existence and the spread of HIV/AIDS. The toll demands an urgent response to protect children everywhere."--Jacket

'I have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb. I have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glorious vista that surrounds me, to look back on the distance I have come. But I can only rest for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities, and I dare not linger, for my long walk is not ended.' Long Walk to Freedom. In 1994, Nelson Mandela became the first president of democratic South Africa. Five years later, he stood down. In that time, he and his government wrought the most extraordinary transformation, turning a nation riven by centuries of colonialism and apartheid into a fully functioning democracy in which all South Africa's citizens, black and white, were equal before the law. Dare Not Linger is the story of Mandela's presidential years, drawing heavily on the memoir he began to write as he prepared to finish his term of office, but was unable to finish. Now, the acclaimed South African writer, Mandla Langa, has completed the task using Mandela's unfinished draft, detailed notes that Mandela made as events were unfolding and a wealth of previously unseen archival material. With a prologue by Mandela's widow, Graca Machel, the result is a vivid and inspirational account of Mandela's presidency, a country in flux and the creation of a new democracy. It tells the extraordinary story of the transition from decades of apartheid rule and the challenges Mandela overcome to make a reality of his cherished vision for a liberated South Africa

Faith & courage : praying with Mandela by Thabo Makgoba( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'We thank you for the inspiration and strength that you have given to Madiba, enabling him, over so many years, to draw out the best in others, rousing us always, by word and example, to seek the highest good for every child of this nation.' So prayed Archbishop Thabo Makgoba with Nelson Mandela in his home in 2009 at the request of Graça Machel. This marked the start of a moving relationship between southern Africa's Anglican leader and Mandela in his last years. Join Makgoba in his journey towards faith, from his boyhood in Alex as the son of a ZCC pastor to Bishopscourt and praying with Mandela. He shares his feelings about his pastoral approach to the world icon, and how they influenced his thinking on ministering to church and nation. What did praying with those nearest and dearest to Mandela mean? What was Madiba's spirituality? In trying to answer these questions, Makgoba opens a window on South Africa's spiritual life."--Back cover

Etre libre, ce n'est pas seulement se débarrasser de ses chaînes : mémoires de Président by Nelson Mandela( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un récit vivant et inspiré de la présidence de Mandela, basé sur ses mémoires inachevés. Les cinq années qui ont permis de concrétiser la vision de Mandela d'une Afrique du Sud libre, moderne et démocratique. En 1994, Nelson Mandela est devenu le premier Président d'une Afrique du Sud démocratique. Dès le départ, il s'était engagé à n'accomplir qu'un seul mandat de cinq ans. Pendant sa présidence, avec son gouvernement, il a fait en sorte que tous les citoyens sud-africains soient désormais égaux devant la loi, et il a posé les fondations permettant de transformer un pays déchiré par des siècles de colonialisme et d'apartheid en une démocratie pleinement opérationnelle. Ce livre est le récit des années de présidence de Mandela, principalement basé sur les mémoires qu'il avait commencé à écrire alors qu'approchait le terme de son mandat, mais qu'il n'a pas eu l'occasion de terminer. Le célèbre écrivain sud-africain Mandla Langa a mené le récit à son terme, s'appuyant sur le brouillon inachevé de Mandela, sur les notes prises par le Président au fil des événements ainsi que sur d'abondantes archives inédites. Avec un prologue de sa veuve, Graça Machel, il en résulte un récit vivant et inspiré de la présidence de Mandela et de l'instauration d'une nouvelle démocratie. Cet ouvrage raconte l'histoire extraordinaire d'un pays en transition et les défis que Nelson Mandela a dû affronter alors qu'il s'efforçait de faire de sa vision pour une Afrique du Sud libre une réalité.
