Description

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

Contents

From crown colony to elective intsitutions - the pressure for self-government during 1904; the destruction of the Rand British "party" - party formation in Johannesburg during 1905; changes of government and the constitutional somersault of early 1906; anti-capitalism and the renewal of the Chinese labour debate late in 1906; the denouement - the general election of 1907.
