Description

When a boatload of Dutch Calvinists settled the southernmost tip of Africa, they were convinced by their strict faith that they were among the "elect," chosen by God to rule over the world. These first colonists would, over time, take on the black tribes, fortune hunters in search of diamonds and gold, and the scarlet-clad regiments of Queen Victoria. Their bloody, ferocious, and fervent saga would culminate three centuries later in one of human history's most notorious political regimes, the establishment of apartheid, and a nation built solely on a system of irrational racism.


An international bestseller that has been praised throughout Europe, Lapierre's tragic yet heroic history of South Africa now appears for the first time in English.
