Cyril Ramaphosa is one of the most popular political figures in South Africa. He is widely credited with playing a major role in the negotiations that led to the democratic settlement in South Africa and devising South Africa's Constitution. After he failed to secure nomination as Deputy President, he left politics and became a successful businessman. This biography tells the story of his life so far. Based on rich interviews with many of the subject's friends and contemporaries, it marries the historical context and the individual life in a way that brings Ramaphosa fully alive. This commanding and fully updated and revised edition features a new chapter from the author covering the most recent and significant developments in the mogul's life including his candidacy for Deputy President, his role in Mangaung, and the controvercial events surrounding Lonmin and the Marikana mines.
