Raleigh Addington
editor at Chartwell Speakers

Tony Leon - Opposite MandelaTony Leon, speaker and advisor on Sub-Saharan African trends and strategy, and former Leader of the Opposition in the South African Parliament, has written a book of unique insight into an unexplored aspect of the presidency and leadership of Nelson Mandela. “Opposite Mandela: Encounters with South Africa’s Icon” relates the untold stories of how South Africa’s first democratic president related to his political opponents.

To be released in May 2014 by Jonathan Ball Publishers, this highly readable and first-hand account considers in a balanced manner both the golden moments and the blind spots of one of the most consequential presidencies and leaders of the modern democratic age.

“[Tony] offers us a unique personal insight into Nelson Mandela and guides us, engagingly and provocatively, through the most turbulent and exciting times in contemporary South African politics” – John Carlin, author of Invictus and Knowing Mandela
