Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation

Author(s): John Carlin


The Rugby World Cup final of 1995 (played between the Sprinboks and the All Blacks at Johannesburg's Ellis Park Stadium)was the last act of the most improbable exercise in mass seduction ever seen: Nelson Mandela's conquest of the hearts of white South Africa. John Carlin presents a thrilling account of how the most charismatic statesman of our time deployed his wits and charm and generous vision to pull off this most unlikely of miracles.
