Segregation and Apartheid in Twentieth-Century South Africa

By William Beinart; Saul Dubow | Go to book overview

EDITORS’ NOTES
a
Sir Alfred Milner was High Commissioner of South Africa at the time of the South African War of 1899-1902. An uncompromising British imperialist, he was one of the chief instigators of the war against the Boer republics and the leading exponent of ‘Anglicization’ policies in the postwar period.
b
J.B.M. Hertzog was leader of the National Party. He became Prime Minister in 1924 in coalition with the Labour Party. Secessionism refers to anti-imperial Afrikaner sentiment which sought to reform or break links with Britain.
c
In 1934, J.B.M. Hertzog’s ruling National Party and Jan Smuts’s opposition South African Party ‘fused’ to become the United Party. The United Party, with Hertzog as Prime Minster and Smuts as Deputy Prime Minister, held power until the outbreak of world war in 1939. Several writers consider that the act of ‘fusion’ helped to precipitate parliamentary acceptance of the key 1936 segregationist acts.
d
Sir Abe Bailey was a leading mining magnate.
e
The Unionist Party was the official opposition party after the first South African elections in 1910. It was in favour of the imperial connection and was sympathetic to mining and commercial interests.
