In the decades since Nelson Mandela was elected president in 1994, he explains, the nation has achieved unprecedented improvements in quality of life, despite the persistent inequality and discrimination experienced by many of its citizens. Ultimately, Until We Have Won Our Liberty (Princeton University Press) pushes back against conventional wisdom about South Africa, instead offering hope for the enduring impact of democratic ideals.
