The history of South Africa by Roger B Beck( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 1,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The history of South Africa, one of the oldest inhabited areas of the world, is also that of one of the newest nations, made and remade over the last century. This narrative, current through 1999, is the only up-to-date history of South Africa. Beginning with an overview of the modern nation, this narrative history traces South Africa from prehistory through the European invasions, the settlement by the Dutch, the imposition of British rule, the many internecine wars for control of the nation, the institution of apartheid, and, finally, freedom for all South Africans in 1994 and the subsequent Mandela government."--Jacket

The migrant farmer in the history of the Cape colony, 1657-1842 by P. J Van der Merwe( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Petrus Johannes van der Merwe wrote three of the most significant books on the history of South Africa before he was 35 years old. His trilogy, of which The Migrant Farmer is the first volume, has become a classic that no student of Cape colonial history of the seventeenth, eighteenth or nineteenth century can ignore. Van der Merwe was unique among Afrikaner historians in that he focused not on the single event known as the Great Trek, but on the greater migration, nearly three hundred years long, of peoples of Dutch, French and German descent out from the victualling station at Cape Town after their arrival there in 1652. In the process he pioneered new directions in historical writing decades before they became fashionable among other South African historians

In telling the history of our world, this book pays special attention to eight significant and recurring themes.

The eight themes in this book are: power and authority, religious and ethical systems, revolution, interaction with environment, economics, cultural interaction, empire building, science and technology. - p. xxx-[xxxi]
