About this book:

Hermann Giliomee, pre-eminent South African historian, dissects the forces that shaped the Afrikaners into an unusual ‘maverick African’ nation. He analyses long-term forces like the powerful legal position of Afrikaner women, the expanding frontier, and the struggles about race inside the church, along with more recent political history.

Readers say

‘One need not necessarily agree with all of Giliomee’s contentions to be impressed by the fairness of his judgements and the quality of his writing.’

– Richard Steyn, Financial Mail
