Oliver Tambo
Biographical info

Among black South African leaders, Oliver Tambo was probably the most respected on the African continent, in Europe, Asia and the Americas. During his stewardship of the ANC he raised its international profile to that of an alternative to the Pretoria government and was received with the protocol reserved for heads of state in many parts of the world.   

During his years in the ANC, Oliver Tambo played a major role in the growth and development of the movement and its policies. He was a vital part of the generation of leaders that emerged after the Second World War, a generation that were instrumental in the transformation of the ANC from a liberal-constitutionalist organisation into a radical national liberation movement.

With a foreword by Nelson Mandela.
