      Reading Nelson Mandela’s ‘Long Walk to Freedom’, ANC’s negotiations with the South African government particularly interested me, and whetted my appetite for further reading in conflict resolution. ‘Great Hatred, Little Room’ is a landmark book in this area.

      A v. fair account (from a particular viewpoint) - great detail, easy to listen to and interesting. Would listen to again. Jonathon Powell is the narrator also.
