Allegations of treason, real or imagined, always rankle. So much more when a life and death struggle of a nation is perceived to be at stake. Yet treason is common in warfare and accusations of sedition abound in any war.

While this book focuses specifically on the intricacies of alleged Afrikaner treason during a particularly volatile period, the analysis is also informed by an awareness of treason in the wider context.

Writing a Wider War presents a dramatically new interpretation of the role of Boer women in the conflict and profoundly changes how we look at the making of Afrikaner nationalism. African experiences of the war are also examined, highlighting racial subjugation in the context of colonial war and black participation, and showcasing important new research by African historians. The collection includes a reassessment of British imperialism and probing essays on J. A. Hobson; the masculinist nature of life on commando among Boer soldiers; Anglo-Jewry; secularism; health and medicine; nursing, women, and disease in the concentration camps; and the rivalry between British politicians and generals. An examination of the importance of the South African War in contemporary British political economy, and the part played by imperial propaganda, rounds off a thoroughly groundbreaking reinterpretation of this formative event in South Africa's history.

In 1914 het ’n groep Afrikaners in verset teen die Unieregering gekom, aangevuur deur “Siener” van Rensburg se visioene wat vertel het van die ondergang van die Britse ryk.

Toe Louis Botha net ná die aanvang van die Eerste Wêreldoorlog aankondig dat die Unie Duits-Suidwes-Afrika sou inval, was die vet in die vuur en het honderde opstandige manne die wapen opgeneem. Volgens die joernalis L.E. Neame was dit “one of the most curious and dramatic incidents in the Great War”.

Naas die Groot Trek en die Anglo-Boereoorlog het die rebellie ’n prominente plek in Afrikanergeskiedsbeskouinge ingeneem. Dit is derhalwe nie verbasend nie dat daar reeds heelwat navorsing oor die opstand gedoen is, maar met Radelose Rebellie? ondersoek prof. Albert Grundlingh en dr. Sandra Swart aspekte daarvan wat tot dusver grotendeels verwaarloos is.

Was dit inderdaad so ’n vae, ongestadige verskynsel soos talle kommentators beweer? Was dit ’n redelose, radelose rebellie? Of het meer daaragter gesteek?

Social history has until now proven to be the most suitable point of departure to pursue the wider connections between sport, leisure and society or explore the interconnections between sport and leisure on the one hand and Afrikaner political and cultural projects on the other. Afrikaner groups at various stages in the twentieth century sought to spend their time when they were not at work by attending dog races during the thirties in Johannesburg, holidaying at the beach at Hartenbos in the southwestern Cape in the fifties or supporting or playing rugby and later cricket.The unifying theme that runs throughout this book is the different ways in which sport and leisure practices during certain historical eras were connected with wider concerns in Afrikaner society and how they contributed substantially to shaping the Afrikaner world of sport and leisure. This analysis of sport and society has a wider relevance. While standard nationalistic interpretations of Afrikaner political history have withered away since the advent of the African National Congress in 1994, in rugby the story of the fame and glory of the Springboks and their grounding in Afrikaner historical memory has carried on largely uninterrupted.

The concentration camps of the Anglo-Boer War caused thousands of deaths and much suffering. But should the women and children in the camps only be seen as victims, or is there another story to be told? The War at Home tries to do just that. Firstly, it explores the unique strength of Boer women, who were often more vehemently anti-British than the men, and their role in supporting the Boer guerrilla fighters. There is also a chapter on the extraordinary Nonnie de la Rey (wife of General Koos de la Rey) who lived in the veld with her six children for nearly two years to avoid capture. A chapter on everyday life in the camps again points out how some camps were run more effectively than others and how for many women the biggest challenge was keeping boredom at bay. In an effort to stay busy, many young Boer women for instance received valuable training as nurse’s assistants. Another chapter on the clash of cultures between British doctors and Boer women explains why camp doctors started to blame the personal hygiene and mothering abilities of Boer women when they could not find ways to cure the dying children. The book also takes the suffering of black civilians in the black camps into account with a special focus on black children. As in the white camps, the majority of the 20 000 deaths in the black camps were children. Lastly, in the year in which the Women’s Monument in Bloemfontein celebrates its centenary, The War at Home looks critically at the meaning of the monument then and now.

R833 Discovery Miles 8 330 Special order

This book provides an interpretation of sport in contemporary South Africa through an historical account of the evolution and social ramifications of sport in the twentieth century. It comprises chapters which trace the growth of sports such as football, cricket, surfing, boxing and rugby, and considers their relationship to aspects of racial identity, masculinity, femininity, political and social development in the country. The book also draws out the wider geo-political significance of South African sport, placing it in the context of the development of sport both elsewhere on the African continent and internationally. The history of sport has seen significant international growth over the past few decades. For the most part, however, the history of sport in Africa has remained largely untraced. By detailing the way in which sport's development in South Africa overlapped with major socio-political processes on the wider African continent, this volume seeks to narrow the gap. This book was previously published as a special issue of the International Journal of the History of Sport.
