Personally if one is interested in a view of Mandela not commonly heard then I recommend what Robby is speaking about right now (live) on his show the Flip Side. (Edit - show is over, move along, move along).
Flipside The Radio Show
One reason I was drawn to Robby's perspective on South Africa is that he was a native, was very well read and had lived in the USA for a number of years and thus could see many similarities.
He does not speak quite as fluidly as he used to due to his strokes but his mind is still all there. I have a lot of respect for Robby and I think his persona is very relative presently due to the death of Mandela.
Robby was also one of the very few commentators on radio networks like Republic Broadcasting Network who did not sensationalise or jump on the rumour/fear mongering bandwagon. His focus was always on economics but also would speak a great deal on his homeland of South Africa.
