Mandela: The Authorized Biography is a biography of Nelson Mandela, first President of South Africa. It was written by journalist Anthony Sampson.[1] It was published in 1999, five years after Mandela's autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom. Sampson's book was one of the first to talk about such issues such as Winnie Mandela's crimes, and State President Frederik Willem de Klerk's suspected attempts to use the security forces to derail peace talks.
