Abstract:This volume originated in a workshop entitled 'An apartheid of souls: Dutch colonialism and its aftermath in Indonesia and South Africa', held at the London School of Economics in December 2000. It aims to initiate a comparative study of the 'Greater Netherlands' by delineating the distinctive governmental and cultural processes which currently shape the emergent democratization of Indonesia and South Africa and by establishing how far these owe something to Dutch (and related European) influence. It compares Dutch 'ethical imperialism' in Indonesia with the 'internal colonialism' of Afrikaner nationalism in South Africa, examining to what degree Dutch and Afrikaners came to share a common 'colonial culture', and the contribution to its creation of the Dutch churches, notably the institution of the 'volkskerk' (lit. people's or national church), and their missions. The editors - Deborah James and Albert Schrauwers - focus in the introduction on the late nineteenth century, underscoring the particular effects of Dutch nationalism, religious 'pillarization' ('verzuiling') and 'ethical' colonialism within the cultural sphere of the 'Greater Netherlands'. Contributions on South Africa include autobiographical notes and an article by Hermann Giliomee, author of 'The Afrikaners: biography of a people' (2003), and articles by Robin Oakley (the Nederduitse Gereformeerde Sendingkerk and the Nama experience in Namaqualand), Linda Waldman (Christianity and Griqua identity), Jonathan Hyslop (Afrikaner identity and the white poor at the end of apartheid), and Deborah James and Geoffrey Nkadimeng (African Christians and land claims).
