The conversation will be centred around the book's central theme, which questions how whites have responded politically to the arrival of democracy in South Africa. It asks the following questions:

-What is the place and role of whites in South Africa today?
-Are whites genuinely willing participants in a 'non-racial democracy', willing to forego the racial privileges of the past?
-Have they proved reluctant to relinquish power?

Roger Southall argues that many whites have chosen to embrace the freedoms that democracy had offered.
