The bestselling narrative history of a group often despised, but never before so well understood. Hermann Giliomee tells their dramatic and compelling story - of contradictory leanings towards freedom and oppression - in highly readable narrative.

Revised and updated, this new edition includes a chapter on the often fraught relationship between Afrikaners and the ANC in power, with an analysis of why Afrikaners relinquished power so easily, and how they, along with other minorities, are increasingly resisting ANC efforts to undermine the Constitution. Giliomee also examines the wildly divergent reactions of Afrikaners to President Zuma and his attempts to woo them.
