About this title


Portrays, in narrative self-portraits, the whites of South Africa--English and Afrikaner--who constitute the ruling seventeen percent of the population and analyzes the effects of power on those who wield it

From Publishers Weekly:

The author, an anthropologist and professor of comparative literature in New York City, lets the whites in a village near Cape Town speak of their past and future, their attitudes and expectations, their feelings about blacks and coloureds, their reactions to criticism from abroad. PW found this "painful but rewarding" reading.
