The Fall of Kruger’s Republic.


This book tries to explain how the discovery of gold on the Witwatersrand led to the Anglo-Boer War.The author starts with a dicussion of the government of Kruger;s Transvaal.He then proceeds to describe the problems posed by the opening up of the mines,not only for Kruger’s government and people,but also for the governments and peoples of Britain and the rest of South Africa.The bulk of the work deals with the manner in which these problems were handled after Joseph Chamberlain became Colonial Secretary in 1895.
