Abstract:

"In the last seventy years, the Oppenheimer family of South Africa has created an empire that is one of the richest and most powerful in the world. With 600 companies employing 800,000 workers on six continents, South Africa Inc. includes the De Beers diamond cartel and the Anglo American Corporation, as well as banks, cars, insurance, newspapers, steel, chemicals, gold, and platinum ... This book paints a remarkable picture of the Oppenheimer dynastic empire, revealing for the first time the full dimensions of its web of secret holding, the extent of its economic and political power, and the fallacies behind its reputation as South Africa's leading white opponent of apartheid"--Jacket.
