About this book:

Hermann Giliomee, top historian, is seen as the world expert on the history of the Afrikaners. This shorter, updated version of his masterly The Afrikaners: Biography of a People recounts a people’s colourful history of survival against the odds, and eventual political surrender. It recreates the past with all its irony and drama in a lively narrative form. Many aspects of South Africa’s contentious history are freshly examined, leaving readers with new, often challenging perspectives.
