THE BOER WAR- ARMY-NATION AND EMPIRE

C.J. Jacobs

Abstract


As could be expected, the proliferation of publications on the Anglo-Boer, 1899-1902, in the centenary period continues unabated. The advantage of the providence of hindsight after a hundred years is that recently the experiences of a wide variety of people that participated in the conflict are being recorded. This is apart from the two main antagonists, the British and the Boers. In the case of the South African experience the role of black people is now gaining its rightful place. On the British side, this publication contributes towards understanding of how people in other parts of the empire, like Australia and Canada experienced this event. After all, the British Empire was never homogeneous and even amongst its English speaking subjects, a wide variety of cultures existed.
