      Despite their sharp divisions, the Afrikaners and the English remained united in two core beliefs: that black South Africans were uncivilized yet important and useful to white South Africans as workers, and that white South Africans must find a way to work together to rule over black South Africans. The book includes an essay by South African writer Antjie Krog: “Three kinds of Afrikaners look out at us from these photographs,” she writes, “of which the poor Afrikaner is the most haunting—the simple one who, by the sweat of his brow, eats his bread in isolation.”.

Afrikaners only played a prominent role in agriculture as such, and many lived on nearby farms, the first of which was proclaimed as early as However, from onwards, local Afrikaners initiated a political process that eventually led to their domination of all these sectors within the next two decades.

      Many Afrikaners have emigrated, including to neighbouring African countries as they worry about land expropriation. The big question, says London-based investigative journalist Kajsa Norman in her new book Bridge over Blood River, is whether the Afrikaans culture can survive. The Genootskap van Regte Afrikaanders (GRA, the Society of True Afrikaners), established in , actively sought to foster a nationalism among white Cape Dutch speakers. “Afrikaans” became their linguistic vehicle and “Afrikaners” their label. They sought to write a nationalist history of oppressors and victims (also Giliomee).
