Description

The wealth and power of Johannesburg and the Witwatersrand were a focal point of the tension which led to the Anglo-Boer war. This is a social history of the community; here are the ‘randlords’, the British rulers and the Boer generals, but equally Diana Cammack brings back to life the working people – Uitlander, Boer and Black, whether miner, shop clerk or seamstress.
