Willie Esterhuyse , Gerhard van Niekerk
This book reveals that as early as 1984, the NP government was desperate to release Nelson Mandela. What if Mandela died behind bars? PW Botha gave the top-secret order to send in Minister Kobie Coetsee to meet with Mandela, leaving the cabinet in the dark. Drawing on a previously secret archive, the book details Mandela and Coetsee's avant garde diplomacy, as they came to respect each other, changing the history of an entire country.
