Ten years after democracy arrived in South Africa here is a book that gives a voice to the Afrikaner, speaking in English about the 'Miracle' of the peaceful transition to majority rule ‰ۡÌÝÌÕ their worst nightmare. This is a book that goes beyond politics with the very human story of one man, giving insight into the hearts and minds of a people struggling to find their identity as white Africans trying to secure their place in Africa. They are seen through the eyes of a Boerejood ‰ۡÌÝÌÕ a half Afrikaans, half Jewish writer ‰ۡÌÝÌÕ who struggles himself with issues of identity, reflecting the struggle around him.

In the final analysisBoerejoodis about the universal human struggle between good and evil, black and white, justice and injustice, love and hate ‰ۡÌÝÌÕ all that defines us as human. It takes the reader on an astonishing and remarkable journey of discovery, the destination being the soul of the Afrikaner, and an answer to why these people accepted black majority rule with relatively no struggle, after years of racist persecution of their black and brown neighbours.
