A history of South Africa from 1852 to 1918.

"Binckes has written a marvellously chronological overview of our boiling pots and melting pots as they rubbed each other over the centuries. South Africa is a jigsaw puzzle, and someone has to open the box. The potential of the box lies in the remarkable details he has uncovered. A strongly recommended read to anyone who wants to understand our past and our future." Nick Binedell, Founder and Professor at Gordon Institute of Business Science
