Playing the Enemy: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Made a Nation by John Carlin

In 1985, Nelson Mandela, then in prison for twenty-three years, set about winning over the fiercest proponents of apartheid before setting his sights on the nations first free elections in 1994. But perhaps his greatest hurdle was finding a cause that would unite the nation, fractured after fifty years of apartheid. His choice was one of the most far-fetched imaginable: the Springboks, their national rugby team, long an embodiment of white supremacist rule.
