The South African War was a catalyst in the creation of modern South Africa and was a major international event which had profound implications for British rule in other parts of their colonial empire. This volume includes a historiographical review of a century of writing on the origins of the war. It examines South Africa's place in the imperial structure and reappraises its impact on imperial defense and the political identities of Africans, Asians, Boer commandos and Cape Afrikaners.
