About this title


A revision of a five-year research project begun in 1989 at the University of Cape Town. The dramatic developments, which began soon after the research project, and which led to South Africa's first non-racial elections in April 1994, caused fundamental changes in the political landscape. Yet a right-wing core of up to 2 million Afrikaners and other whites cling to a racist nationalism for security in a racially integrated society. The author says this core presents a serious threat both to the post-apartheid transitional process and to any democratically elected government in the new South Africa. Distributed by St. Martin's Press. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

About the Author:

Johann van Rooyen was born South Africa in 1960. After school in Cape Town he studied Law at the University of Stellenbosch, followed by two years in the South African Navy. He resumed his studies in 1984 at the University of Cape Town in the field of political studies and obtained his Doctorate in 1992. He lectured and guest-lectured for a short while at Rhodes University and UCT before relocating to Ontario, Canada in 1992. There he continued with his research and in 1994 he published Hard Right - South Africa's New White Power (IB Tauris Publishers, London) and contributed chapters in Democratic Nation-building (HSRC Publishers, Pretoria) and in Election '94 South Africa (David Phillip Publishers, Cape Town).

Van Rooyen returned to South Africa with his family in 1996 where he entered the business world. He published his latest book, The New Great Trek (Unisa Press, Pretoria) in September 2000, a culmination of four years of part-time research, his observations of the post-apartheid South Africa and his own experiences abroad. He currently lives in Vancouver, Canada, where he owns and operates his own business.
