DF Malan and the Rise of Afrikaner Nationalism, Lindie Koorts’s recently published biography of former South African prime minister Daniël Francois Malan (1874–1959), is formed out of research that Koorts conducted for a project at the University of Johannesburg in 2004 for a research MA dissertation titled “DF Malan: an intellectual biography, 1874–1915”, taken further at the University of Stellenbosch in 2006 for her DPhil thesis, “DF Malan: a political biography”,as well as several academic papers that she prepared for presentation/delivery and publication. What readers have to look forward to, therefore, is a biography that spans DF Malan’s intellectual development before his entry into politics as well as his political career of 1915–1954 – essentially a biography from the cradle to the grave, except for the final five years of his life, which have not really been included.
