About this product
- DescriptionBoerejood is biography crossed with the unpacking of political mystery, crossed with a travel book. A bit of a chameleon - a book of many colours. It takes readers on a 1,000 mile journey round the Cape as Capetonian returns after 25 years abroad to seek an understanding of the SA 'Miracle'. The writer grows up with a foot in two cultures and finding that this can be both uncomfortable & funny. It speaks of then and w and how to live in South Africa today. The book is NOT an apologia for the Afrikaners - but I do speak up for them. It is about the loss of land, language and culture - it is a sad song from the heart of a half Afrikaans expatriate. It is a bifocal view of South Africa which compares and contrasts the Jews and the Afrikaners. It poses the question: 'Will the Afrikaners survive as a tribe, a culture. Will Afrikaans be a language for cyberspace only.?
