About the Book

In the early 2000s, a few years after becoming a democracy, South Africa saw the rise of a white separatist militia known as the Boeremag. In the early 2000s, they devised a coup, and bombs started exploding across the country. This book chronicles the longest running criminal trial in South African history, piecing together court transcripts and interviews to explore the dynamics and ideals at the source of the movement and the coup. The book offers a firsthand look at the dark consequences of nationalism and populism.
