Summary
This is a political history of the Afrikaner peoples from their arrival in southern Africa in 1652, up to the present day. The account covers the establishment of the Dutch East India trading post in the Cape, the Great Trek of the 1830s, the discovery of golf and diamonds in the Transvaal in the late nineteenth century, the Anglo-Boer War, the effects of the two World Wars and the democratic elections of 1994. At all these stages G.H.L. Le May assesses not only the development of the state institutions of Afrikaner society, but also the evolution of the people's distinct mentality
