My Watch Trilogy Bundle By Olusegun Obasanjo
"During his watch, a watchman has no sleep and no respite." - Olusegun Obasanjo Following in the steps of his previous memoirs, & ldquo;My Command & rdquo; and & ldquo;Not My Will & rdquo;, Olusegun Obasanjo's & ldquo;My Watch & rdquo; is more than the story of the Obasanjo presidency told by the man himself. It is a memoir of a lifetime spent in service to country, of a man who has been destined with the watch, with the vigilance, with the responsibility to his people to speak up and speak out. & ldquo;My Watch & rdquo; by the only military and civilian President in Nigeria & rsquo;s history, spans large expanses of time, from the pre-colonial Owu history, to early Abeokuta and the last throes of an independent city state at turn-of-the-century colonial Nigeria, to the early life of its author, his civil war experience, his stewardship of the transitional government of 1976-1979, the interregnum, his second appearance on the national scene as a civilian President on Nigeria's return to democracy in 1999, the completion of the first civilian-civilian transfer of government in Nigeria's history that inaugurated the Yar'Adua Presidency and signalled the end of Obasanjo's tenure in office, and the years hence. Presented in three volumes, this exquisitely narrated memoir, is intensely personal, broadly nationalistic and international, told by this sojourner of Nigerian and world history, Olusegun Mathew Okikiola Aremu Obasanjo.

Long Walk To Freedom: The Autobiography Of Nelson Mandela
Long Walk to Freedom: The Autobiography of Nelson Mandela The book that inspired the major new motion picture "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom". Nelson Mandela is one of the great moral and political leaders of our time: an international hero whose lifelong dedication to the fight against racial oppression in South Africa won him the Nobel Peace Prize and the presidency of his country. Since his triumphant release in 1990 from more than a quarter-century of imprisonment, Mandela has been at the center of the most compelling and inspiring political drama in the world. As president of the African National Congress and head of South Africa's antiapartheid movement, he was instrumental in moving the nation toward multiracial government and majority rule. He is revered everywhere as a vital force in the fight for human rights and racial equality. Long Walk to Freedom is his moving and exhilarating autobiography, destined to take its place among the finest memoirs of history's greatest figures. Here for the first time, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela tells the extraordinary story of his life-an epic of struggle, setback, renewed hope, and ultimate triumph.
