I found this book of speeches absolutely insightful. Mandela & Castro are two of the greatest leaders the world have ever seen and are likely to see for sometime. Their collective lifetime experiences are cut from the same cloth and though geographically separated in an internet-less age, both struggles for freedom and uniquely linked. Labels are easy to attached these days especially with media promoting the practice but Castro and Mandela are the truest humanitarians the world have seen for generations. Both stand for the same principles, equality, freedom and justice which is often too absent in western countries despite their promotion of democracy.
The book also gives a review of southern African history which is not spoken about too regularly.
Excellent buy and even better read.
