"Thirty years have now passed since the ending of the South African War and the death of Cecil Rhodes, of whom three new biographies have been recently published in England. In this book, a detailed and impartial study of the published documents, Dr. Lovell attempts two things. He tells, from the human rather than the Rhodesian, the Africander, or the British point of view, the plain tale of economic imperialism in South Africa. He also traces the general European background of the competition of Boer, German, and Portuguese with British Imperialism. The Anglo-German estrangement following the Heligoland treaty of 1890 and the Mediterranean entente, and the Kruger Telegram of January, 1896, are fully discussed. Begininning, after an introductory survey, with Sir Bartle Frere and the Zulu War, with Gladstone and Majuba, thebook ends with a survey of the diplomacy of the second Boer War, on which a flood of new light heas been shed by the publication of the Milner Papers." - from dust-jacket blurb.
