Description

Internationally renowned historian Hermann Giliomee was singled out by the The Economist​’s SA correspondent, Diana Geddes, who said: “I found Hermann Giliomee’s 700-page The Afrikaners the most fascinating of the various histories on South Africa.” Giliomee is not only a giant among South African historians; he has also been intimately involved in the unfolding drama of South Africa’s history, being called everything from “the Boer in the woodpile”, to “Taalbul” (language bull). As participant in the Dakar talks with the ANC, outspoken commentator who antagonised both the pre- and post-1994 governments, and world expert on the Afrikaners, Giliomee’s lucidity and passion for his subject make for a gripping narrative. A readable mix of personal history and stimulating, often unorthodox analysis by a leading thinker.
