How far away must the past be to be able to cast a cold eye on it, for pain and injustice to be no more than pale words that have bled out along the path to a better world?
Hermann Giliomee calls The Last Afrikaner Leaders a “reassessment” of the leadership of the National Party. It takes a brave writer even to suggest a disinterested reappraisal of as loathed a figure as H.F. Verwoerd, never mind the dour B.J. Vorster or the finger-wagging P.W. Botha.
