Nelson Mandelaâ€™s collection of articles, speeches, letters and trial transcripts documenting his life and imprisonment compiled in a book entitled No Easy Walk to Freedom will finally go digital.
The agreement has been made between Mandela and Proquest, a leader in collection, organization, and publishing of information. Initially published in 1965, the digital version is expected to be out by December this year.
“Nelson Mandela holds a unique place in the global imagination as a symbol of African freedom and independence, and No Easy Walk to Freedom is one of the most significant works of the anti-apartheid movement. ProQuest is privileged to be able to republish this volume as part of our digital edition of the African Writers Series”, said Dan Burnstone, Publishing Director, Proquestâ€™s Chadwyck-Healey.
Itâ€™s good to see eye-opening books going digital to appeal to the technology-driven generation. I could hope that this feat would educate more people around the globe about apartheid.
