Description

The attempt here is to find an explanation of the Reconstruction by focussing on two groups which were at its heart- the Rand British industrial population, and the mining financiers who were so influential amongst them. Futhermore, the intimate relationship between the two groups, which was both callaborative and combative, has never been thoroughly analyzed.

Contents

Gold mining, the gold mines, and the social structure of the Rand; the formation of the Rand British identity - the Uitlanders in the 1890s; the roots of an involvement - gold mines nad politics in the late 1890s; the frustrations of war and exile - the first challenge to Rand British coherence; peace and disappointment - coming to terms with the new government in 1902; black, white and Chinese labour - the mones, the government and Rand Britons in 1900s.
