Summary
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 racism--Publisher's description
