The Afrikaners: Biography of A People, the first comprehensive history of the Afrikaner people based on-and critical of-the most recent scholarly work, draws on the author's own research and interviews conducted with leading political actors. Hermann Giliomee weaves together life stories and interpretation to create a highly readable narrative history of the Afrikaners. This revised and expanded edition also offers a fresh contextualisation of apartheid, its paradoxes and its complex effects, and of the increasingly fraught relationship between the ANC government and the powerless Afrikaner minority. Giliomee revises current orthodoxies on white supremacy in South Africa in important ways. The result is not only a magisterial history of the Afrikaner people, but also a fuller understanding of that history, which for good or ill resonates far beyond the borders of South Africa.

  1. Well written
    Robert Gustafsson, 18 juni 2014

    Gilliomee writes a convincing book about Afrikaner identity and history, a must have for scientists researching the topic. I can recommend the book without hesitation.

A book to welcome ... it includes an account of the origins and demise of apartheid that must rank as the most sober, objective and comprehensive we have. -- J. M. Coetzee, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature Magisterial... The strength of the book lies in [Giliomee's] distillation of a lifetime's research and reflection into a single prodigious volume. -- The Economist This crowning work by one of South Africa's most prominent social scientists is likely to become a baseline for interpreting Afrikaner history for a long time to come. -- Foreign Affairs There can be no more experienced or honest guide than Hermann Giliomee. -- Charles Van Onselen, winner of the Alan Paton Award For anyone wanting to understand the fascinating history of this people, continuously facing the existential question of survival for 350 years, this is and will remain the indispensable work. -- R.W. Johnson, The Sunday Times
