From the cover: “This book tells the story of the rise to power of the Afrikaners, the remarkable group of whites who today rule South Africa. At the beginning of the century they were a defeated nation after daring to challenge the might of the British Empire in the Anglo-Boer War. Their tiny army was beaten; their country had been laid waste by Kitchener’s scorched earth policy; twenty-six thousand Afrikaner women and children had died in the British concentration camps; the British had even tried to suppress the Afrikaners’ language.
