Alex Newman is an American journalist and consultant who writes about economics, finance, banking, business, and politics for diverse publications in the United States and abroad. He has also lived in South Africa and therefore has firsthand knowledge of the country. Newman has recently reviewed AmaBhulu for the news magazine The New American. The detailed review may be read HERE.
As to the factual nature of AmaBhulu Newman states,
—”…Booyens does a tremendous service to the truth. He presents facts that have been all but lost to mainstream history.”
This comment may very well have something to do with the 1280 references and some 270 bibliographic works that form the basis of AmaBhulu. These references and footnotes comprise no fewer than 30 pages. Every effort certainly was made to ensure that the work was backed up with a suitable “mountain” of evidence and sources.
As to the scope of AmaBhulu as a work of non-fiction, Newman writes,
—”While the staggering amount of knowledge, insight, and history contained in the book certainly makes it a tremendous value all on its own, there is another element that may be more important still: The potential lessons it has to offer the people of the First America as they struggle against many of the same forces that helped destroy the ‘Second America’. ”
It is heartening to see that Americans are beginning to heed the message of AmaBhulu.
