Abstract:The Broederbond is an arrogant, self-chosen elite, operating by stealth and intrigue, its early cultural aspirations swamped by its neo-Fascist ideas on race and colour. Its nature, functions and role have been thoroughly mystified. This paper attempts the beginnings of a demystification of the Bond's operations and an assessment of its role up till 1948. Such an assessment requires more than an examination of conflicting claims about the Broederbond; it demands situating the Bond within the broader context of Afrikaner Nationalism in South Africa. Notes.
