This book focuses on the relationship between Cecil Rhodes, perhaps the greatest British imperialist, and the Cape Afrikaners, two seemingly incompatible partners.
The Cape Afrikaner dimension was critical in Rhodes' political career. Mordechai Tamarkin has consulted a number of Cape Afrikaner sources and so adds something to the writing about the life of Rhodes. He also adds to our understanding of the Cape Afrikaner community - the evolution of their ethnic identity and consciousness and their relationship towards English-speaking colonists and the British Empire.
