Summary

South Africa's pre-eminent historian explains the spectacular rise - and probable demise - of the numerical minority that dominated 20th-century South Africa. Award-winning author Hermann Giliomee takes a hard analytical look at this group's dramatic ascent and possible disappearance, as he writes about ethnic entrepreneurship, the 'coloured vote', what really happened prior to the disastrous Rubicon speech and the threat to Afrikaans.
