Friedmann; the South African publication of the english translation of this novel first published in 1972 as 'Na die Geliefde Land'; winner of the South African CNA Literary prize in 1973; "Promised Land is a startling and chilling perspective of South Africa in the not-too-distant future. It transcends the limitations of time and country. Fable-like it provides an image of tyranny anywhere and at any time. It is a grim warning for the future. This the first time that Karel Schoeman has allowed one of his novels to be translated into English.
