South Africa’s top historian, Hemann Giliomee, investigates the manner in which in South Africa, the Afrikaner group is unique and exceptional in comparative world terms.
Small nations’ survival as a group is constantly in turmoil, and therefore they are different from the bigger nations’ that can fall back on centuries of history and the promise of an uninterrupted future.
In this follow up to The Rise and Demise of the Afrikaners, Giliomee sets his insightful eye on what is specific to the Afrikaners and their history.
The NG-Kerk’s influence on apartheid, the extraordinary role that Afrikaaner women played, the public service, and the demand over corruption under apartheid come under the lens. In his last chapter Giliomee describes ‘the broken heart of the Afrikaaners’.
